Logout bookmark for your browser

If you do a lot of web development where you need to login as different users to see different funtionality then, like me, you are probably tired of closing the browser to kill the session. Sometimes you can put a link right in the app to logout but not always. To get around this I created a bookmark in my browser and wrote the following javascript into the URL property. It should log you out and take you right back to the database you were in. Make sure there are no line returns in the code when you paste it into the bookmark location.

javascript:var url = location.hostname; 
url += "?Logout&RedirectTo=";var tmp = 
location.href; tmp = tmp.toLowerCase(); var 
pos = tmp.indexOf(".nsf"); url += 
tmp.substring(0, pos + 4); alert(url); location.href = url;
