Avoid opening same url tab again using JavaScript

The second parameter of provides the name of the window or tab to open it in. If you use '_blank' then it will always open in a new window. If you specify a value that doesn't start with an underscore and a window or tab already exists with that name then the page will be loaded in that existing window or tab. The fourth parameter can be set to true or false to indicate how the existing history associated with that window or tab should be treated.

So here the second param I have passed is the same URL as I consider it as unique.

var url = 'http://your_url';, url);
