Window.document

« Window

Summary

Returns a reference to the document contained in the window.

Note: Firefox 3 alters the security for windows' documents so that only the domain from which it was located can access the document. While this may break some existing sites, it's a move made by both Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 7, and results in improved security.
