Stop iOS Web app links from launching Safari

You may have noticed that if you have made your website into an iOS webapp, that <a> tags leave the app and launch in Safari, which is slightly irritating. To fix this, it’s just a little Javascript:

<script>(function(a,b,c){if(c in b&&b[c]){var d,e=a.location,f=/^(a|html)$/i;a.addEventListener("click",function(a){d=a.target;while(!f.test(d.nodeName))d=d.parentNode;"href"in d&&(d.href.indexOf("http")||~d.href.indexOf(e.host))&&(a.preventDefault(),e.href=d.href)},!1)}})(document,window.navigator,"standalone")</script>
