 Hello Guys,

 Wanted to know if there is a way for us to find out, when a user moves
 away
 from our website( closing the window and entering a different url in the
 address bar )

 closing the window i guess, we could use the javascript onclose or
 something
 similar but for the user moving away from my website by entering a
 different
 URL is what i would like to be able to find out.

 Thanks,
 Vinay

Yeah. You and everyone else on the web... ;-)

Not possible really. The web (by design) is stateless. This is the same
reason that you can't cancel a long running mySQL query if someone hits
Stop in the browser or leaves the page (and your mySQL server will
happily keep churning away and then try to return the data to a
non-existant page). It's sort of a fire and forget system.

Best you can hope for is to keep updating a timestamp to know how long
they've been there (and an auto-logout after some amount of inactivity).

I think you can do that with window.focus in javascript.
