PlatformLocation class

This class should not be used directly by an application developer. Instead, use Location.

PlatformLocation encapsulates all calls to DOM apis, which allows the Router to be platform agnostic. This means that we can have different implementation of PlatformLocation for the different platforms that angular supports. For example, the default PlatformLocation is {@link BrowserPlatformLocation}, however when you run your app in a WebWorker you use WebWorkerPlatformLocation.

The PlatformLocation class is used directly by all implementations of LocationStrategy when they need to interact with the DOM apis like pushState, popState, etc...

LocationStrategy in turn is used by the Location service which is used directly by the Router in order to navigate between routes. Since all interactions between {@link Router} / Location / LocationStrategy and DOM apis flow through the PlatformLocation class they are all platform independent.
