      //document.addEventListener('focus', c); //for when focus again this page
    }
    return !document[stateKey];
  }
})();

// Gives the initial state
var page_vstate = vis_chg() ?'visible' :'not-visible';

vis_chg(function(){
  var re_vchg = vis_chg(); //FALSE=leaves the page; TRUE=re-enter in page
  console.log(new Date, 'vis_chg: ', re_vchg); //for debug in console
  page_vstate = re_vchg ?'visible' : whenVisChg();
});

//This function is executed when the page changes visibility state
