Browser Object Model
Some common objects and properties in the Browser Object Model include:
- document: Represents the web page being displayed and provides access to its content through the DOM.
- navigator: Contains information about the user's browser and operating system.
- location: Represents the URL of the current web page and provides methods to manipulate it.
- history: Represents the user's browsing history and allows navigation back and forth.
- screen: Provides information about the user's screen dimensions and resolution.
The Document element, serving as the root of DOM elements, is an integral component within the Browser Object Model (BOM) hierarchy. This Document object symbolizes the web page that is presented in the browser. All constituents of a web page, encompassing HTML tags, reside within this Document object. Due to its paramount importance within the BOM, it possesses a distinct object model referred to as the Document Object Model (DOM).

Developers can use the BOM to perform tasks such as opening new browser windows, redirecting to different URLs, manipulating the browser's history, displaying alerts and prompts, and interacting with the user's device and environment.
It's important to note that the BOM is not standardized by any official specification like the DOM is. This means that different browsers may provide slightly different BOM features and methods, leading to inconsistencies in behavior across browsers.
