Hi , I am using navigator.OnLine property to check the internet connection,for some browsers it is working(version 69.0/60.0) and for some it is not (version 70.9.b/69.0.1) . Are we going to support this property in all version in near future ?? The property wont return the consistent value : navigator.OnLine Please check and assist us to resolve this issue. Thank you in advance.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/77.0.3865.90 Safari/537.36
AFAIK in Firefox and Internet Explorer, this property doesn't check the present connection state, it only check if browser is in the offline mode.
After switching the browser to offline mode (FIle -> Work offline) it has a false value, all other conditions return a true value;
In Chrome and Safari, if the browser is not able to connect to a local area network (LAN) or a router, it is offline; all other conditions return true. So while you can assume that the browser is offline when it returns a false value, you cannot assume that a true value necessarily means that the browser can access the internet.
