Javascript to get URL of page

In my project, today i need to get the URL of the page, i used a small Javascript to implement it. In Javascript location object contains information about the current URL. It is supported by all the major browsers.
The location object is part of the window object and is accessed through the window.location property. Quite simple script to do this is :

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    document.write (document.location.href);

Properties of Location Object
 hash  Returns the anchor portion of a URL
 host  Returns the hostname and port of a URL
 hostname  Returns the hostname of a URL
 href  Returns the entire URL
 pathname  Returns the path name of a URL
 port  Returns the port number the server uses for a URL
 protocol  Returns the protocol of a URL
 search  Returns the query portion of a URL

Note : Please note that this won't work if you are using frames in your page.
