Navigate back from url opened in BrowserWindow "_self"


#1

Hi,

I’m testing out Electron functionality including loading external url’s. When opening them directly in the main BrowserWindow rather than a child ‘popup’ window, there doesn’t seem to be a way to go back to the original, embedded app screen url (index.html).

I’ve tested using an iframe solution, but unfortunately some of the web sites I’m testing (and will likely include in a ‘real’ app) have ‘load denied by x-frame-options’.

Is there some native Electron call I can implement or a way to reserve a portion of the app window for button(s). How about keyboard shortcuts?

Thanks
