Hi everyone,

I need to find a way to find out where a person is going when it leaves my web site for statistical reasons. I know of the unload function of JS, but is there a way to find out where that person is going? Because I need to know if the person is staying on my site (and just moving to another page) or completely leaving my site...

Not really. You cannot see the uri string using Javascript. The best way to know whether the visitor left your site is to check your server logs.
