Parse URL in node using the URL module and in the browser using the DOM


The url-parse method exposes two different API interfaces. The url interface that you know from Node.js and the new URL interface that is available in the latest browsers.

Since 0.1 we've moved away from using the DOM's <a> element for URL parsing and moving to a full Regular Expression solution. The main reason for this change is to make the URL parser available in different JavaScript environments as you don't always have access to the DOM like Worker environments. This module still have a really small foot print as this module's main intention is to be bundled with client-side code. The only problem however with a RegExp based solution is that it required a lot of lookups causing major problems in FireFox. So the last and the current solution was a pure string parsing solution which chops up the URL in smaller pieces.

Node.js is an event-based server-side JavaScript engine.
