    Detect browser tab refresh and browser tab close using javascript

    There is no function to differentiate between browser tab refresh and browser tab close but i found a way to differentiate between two.

    We have

    Function ‘onload’ – it is fired when we refresh browser tab.

    Function ‘unload’ – it is fired when we either refresh browser tab or close browser tab.


    We don’t have a single function in javascript which works only on browser tab close.

    How to achieve this ?

    This code will not work when we reload the page using URL or button present on browser menu bar.
