How to get a specific query string from the url in vanilla JavaScript?

I know that there are libraries that do this for me, but what’s the best way of achieving this without the use of a library?

@NathanCruzAug 12, 2022 — The most modern and effective way in terms of performance is by using Javascript's Proxy:

const params = new Proxy(new URLSearchParams(, {
get: (urlParams, queryStringKey) => urlParams.get(queryStringKey),
//to get the value of the key "my_key", just use params.my_key
let my_value = params.my_key
