  • window.open will open a new browser with the specified URL.

  • window.location.href will open the URL in the window in which the code is called.

Note also that window.open() is a function on the window object itself whereas window.location is an object that exposes a variety of other methods and properties.

window.location.href is not a method, it's a property that will tell you the current URL location of the browser. Changing the value of the property will redirect the page.

window.open() is a method that you can pass a URL to that you want to open in a new window. For example:

window.location.href example:

window.location.href = 'http://www.google.com'; //Will take you to Google.

window.open() example:

window.open('http://www.google.com'); //This will open Google in a new window.


Additional Information:

window.open() can be passed additional parameters. See: window.open tutorial
