Definition and Usage

The unload() method was deprecated in jQuery version 1.8.

The unload event occurs when the user navigates away from the page.

The unload event is triggered when:

  • a link to leave the page is clicked
  • a new URL is typed in the address bar
  • the forward or back buttons are used
  • the browser window is closed
  • the page is reloaded

The unload() method specifies what happens when a unload event occurs.

The unload() method should only be used on the window object.

Note: The unload event might work differently in different browsers. Be sure to test this method in all browsers, before use.
