On our corporate site we need to have links that are external to our company come up with an Alert Box stating they are leaving the site.  If they choose continue it will allow them to go to that link but if they cancel it will go back to the exisitng web page.  I am unsure of how to do this and want to see if anyone can help create a script that can accomplish this task.

javascript has onunload event for body, but using this you cannot return to the web-page since that event is called after the page is unloaded.

javascript also has onbeforeunload event, which is called before unloading happens, but it works only on IE.

So, i don't think there is any way to achieve your requirement
