Hello I am using the following code to clear a cookie when my browser closes, the only problem is that it clears the cookie when I navigate to another page.

Is there a way to only call the function if the browser closes?


$(window).on('beforeunload', function(e) {
return "You will now be logged out,";
});

$(window).on('unload', function(e) {
document.cookie = 'hodan_current_cookie=; expires=Fri, 3 Aug 2012 20:47:11 UTC; path=/'
});
