If there is an error, such as lack of permissions, try catch would catch it.

alert(document.body.isHomePage('http://searchmore.in'));

The isHomePage method will always return false if the document that is calling the isHomePage method is not on the same domain. For example, if www.microsoft.com is set as your homepage, and you call this method from a page on the Microsoft® Web site, then the isHomePage method returns true. However, if your homepage is set to www.microsoft.com and you call this method from a page on a different domain, the method will return false.
