Is there a way to find out in java , when a user leaves the current domain and goes to another domain by typing another URL in address field of browser.

e.g.

if i am at www.yahoo.com and if i type www.hotmail.com in the address bar.
Can I track the domain of the newer site i.e. www.hotmail.com this is only needed if the user is changing the domain through the Address bar in Internet Explorer or Location bar in Netscape.
I have tried location.hostname in javascript and it is giving me www.yahoo.com i.e. the current hostname but i could not access the www.hotmail.com ie. the new URL.
Is there a java solution for this either through invisible applets or invisible servlets, or any java function I use in a JSP , servlet etc.
Any solution in any software is ok.
Thanks for your time and help

Thanks

I think it is not possible. If Yahoo can find out that I am visiting Hotmail or some other site not by clicking on a link on the Yahoo site but by entering the URL, I would consider that a bug!
