See this page:
document.location was originally a read-only property, although Gecko browsers allow you to assign to it as well. For cross-browser safety, use window.location instead.

document.location has been changed to document.URL,
though both are supported by most browsers.
window.location returns an object,
document.URL or document.location returns a read only string.

You can't change the document.URL, but you can change the window location.
The window.location.href property is the same as the document.URL unless there was a server redirect.
