Re: History Object

You cannot directly see the url in the history list.
This 'feature' has been disabled until the next release because it was
viewed as a security hole.   Would you wan't every site you visit to be able
to copy/log/look through all the sites you'd previously been at?

It could also allow people to see things like passwords on cgi trailers
