Get them from where? Please explain in more detail what you are trying to achieve.

Get them from chrome browser or firefox browser. I want to get every url from chrome tab/firefox tab using c++.
Richard MacCutchan 22-Jan-13 6:04am
There is no point in merely repeating your original question. Exactly what URLs are you talking about, and how do you expect to get the information - from some stored file, by using a Browser extension ... ?
07hc420 22-Jan-13 6:31am
I want to get in c++ application, not an extension.
example: i open chrome with 3 tabs. tab 1:, tab2:, tab3: I want to get url of every tab i opened in c++ application.

I have no idea if that is even possible, but you could try searching the forums at the Chrome website for information.

I tried to explain in my answer that the problem is not that's impossible (most likely, you are right), but would make little to no sense. What do you think?
Richard MacCutchan 23-Jan-13 3:45am
I agree, your answer makes a lot of sense.
Thank you, Richard.

Solution 1

There is no way to do it, and there is no sense in doing it. I would say, you would have the worst solution if you managed to do it.

The tab-related properties of a Web browser are not a part of any existing or proposed standard, as well as all the Web pages shown by a single browser, in one process or separate ones. So, at best, you would be able to do it in some particular browser if it has the API for that.

And doing anything for a particular Web browser (perhaps, except some kind of plug-in/add-on) makes little to no sense.
