However the problem comes when I tested it on the IE7 and Netscape 7.0 and Netscape 7.1. IE7 gives me a prompt which is asking whether to close the window or not. The script is not at all functioning in the Netscape browser.
The new file contains the window.close() method in its onload() method of BODY tag.So the code looks like this..
var pos = agt.indexOf('msie');
version = navigator.userAgent.substring(pos + 5).substring(0, 1);
if((agt.indexOf("msie") != -1) && (version 7)
This will works fine for the Internet Explorer v6 and above and Netscape v7 and above. The idea here is the browsers IE7 and Netscape support tabbed browsing so we cannot close them using window.close(). So we close the browser by opening a new file in the same window using script.
