  I know this is probably very simple but has anyone implemented a stack, with push and pop capabilities, using Javascript? I need an example to use to keep track of URLs visited on my site and allow a user to back out the way they came in. I know about the History.back and history.go functions but IE and Netscape implement them differently in pages utilizing frames.

If your web site is not all frames then you will have to resort to using cookies or opening a window and use the methodology described below.  Only problem is if the user closes the window.

If your web site is frames only then you can store where the user has been or is going in one of the frames that don't change.  To implement create a global array and counter variable in the non-changing frame.  Then when the user goes from one URL to another you call a function that increases the counter and then inserts the URL to where they are going into the array at the counter location.

function addURL(toURL) {
  cntURL = cntURL + 1
  arrayURL[cntURL] = toURL
}

To go back:

function gotoURL() {
  cntURL = cntURL - 1
  parent.yourframename.location = arrayURL[cntURL]
}
