Windowo

A javascript library for creating websites with hidden urls. Demo

Types

About

This method seems to be quite old and I first found in an old bookmarklet that had many little features using it to “clone” websites by geting the innerHTML of the whole page and making it in an about:blank page. To use it you just make a new var with a window.open like var page = window.open() but not adding a url. Then use innerHTML of document write like page.document.write("test"). It has been used in SC and Utopia but can be found in older bookmarklets.

Blob

This method creates a blob url (a temporary url that thats stores data in a file-like object). It’s a feature thats used by many websites and is well documented but not used by the community. You can find the official Mdn docs here.

Overwrite

Just sets the innerHTML of the current page.

Notes

How it Works

Basically creates a full screen iframe with whatever url you want.

Hide From History

The about method does hide the website from your history. The blob one does go into your history but is deleted very soon after. The overwrite method just shows the current website you are on. Extensions like securly that have iframe detection might still see it.

Unblockable

Despite what you have heard, it will still be blockable because your viewing the website just in an iframe.

Basic Example

HTML

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/FogNetwork/Windowo/index.js"></script>

Javascript

//Creates new Windowo
var page = new Windowo({
    "type": "blank", //Blank, blob, or overwrite
    "url": "https://example.com" //Any url
})
//Set the type
page.setType("blank")
//Set the url
page.setUrl("https://example.com")
//Get iframe code
console.log(page.getCode())
//Open page
page.open()
