javascript before leaving the page

javascript before leaving the page  using -'javascript,jquery'

I want to make a confirmation before user leaving the page.If he says ok then it would redirect to new page or cancel to leave.I tried to make it with onunload

<script type="text/javascript">
function con() {
    var answer = confirm("do you want to check our other products")
    if (answer){

        window.location = "";

<body onunload="con();">
<h1 style="text-align:center">main page</h1>

but it confirm after page already closed?How to do it properly.It would be even better if someone shows how to do it with jquery?Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance

This post is rather old, but for the records (or someone finding this page via Google): You might as well consider this plugin on github: It fires an event when someone is entering the address bar. I would not rely on it. but it might be an unobtrusive way to ask for feedback.
