  // the enums.
  // A type is made of a core value and a set of qualifiers. A type has one

    // several frames containing ads, those ad URLs will have this transition

    // separate frame, so may not care about the URL (see MANUAL below).

    // generate new navigation entries in the back/forward list. These are
    // probably more important than frames that were automatically loaded in
    // the background because the user probably cares about the fact that this
    // link was loaded.

    // separately from their tracking of this transition type, which is mainly

    // additional visit with a transition type of KEYWORD_GENERATED against the
    // url 'http://' + keyword. For example, if you do a tab-to-search against
