HTML | DOM History go() Method

The History go() method in HTML is used for loading a specific URL from the history list. It is a better alternative of history.back() and history.forward() methods if number or the URL of the specific page are known which want to load from your history.

Syntax:

history.go( number|URL )

Parameters: This method accepts single parameter number|URL which is mandatory and used to specify either the number/position of the URL in the history list or the URl of the page. -1 is used to go one page back and 1 is used for go one page forward.

Below program illustrates the History go() method in HTML:

Example:



<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head
        <title>DOM History.go() Method</title
        <style
            h1 { 
                color:green; 
            
            h2 {
                font-family: Impact;
            }
            body { 
                text-align:center; 
            
        </style
    </head>
    <body>
        <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1
        <h2>DOM History.go( ) Method</h2
        <p>For going to the second next URL in the history, 
        double click the "Go to the second next URL" button: </p>
        <button ondblclick="history_goforward()">Go to the 
        second next URL</button>

            function history_goforward() {
                window.history.go(2);
