The body of the POST request is a JSON object containing the following keys:
* ``title`` Title of the webpage (typically the content of the ```` tag)
* ``url`` URL of the webpage
* ``time`` Time at which the event occurred. Number of milliseconds elapsed since 1 January 1970 00:00:00 UTC
* ``key`` A key identifying the browser sending the request
* ``favicon`` The URL of the webpage's favicon (or ``null`` when there is no favicon)

set to ``null``.
