Nowadays mobile devices includes a large variety of hardware components and sensors which are used by several applications for obtaining context information or creating new ways of interaction. At the beginning hardware access was limited for installed applications only (native applications) but day after day new web standards arises allowing accessing hardware component and sensor. Geolocation, for example, can be used from web sites in the same way and with equivalent results than in a native application. This article analyses the proximity sensor API (Application Programming Interface) and proposes it use for the detection of different events that can be used in a web environment. For example for improving navigation by going back to the home page or opening a menu by simply moving a finger over the sensor
