Gone are the days when browsers would just let you open up any window you wanted, anywhere on the screen, at any size with or without any browser adornments. Anyone remember the chromeless windows project? They were able to do some pretty awesome things with it.

I remember experimenting with some full screen stuff where you could make a full-screen window and size it down to remove the border etc. kinda sorta worked.

chromeless windows... geeeez... those were like almost a decade ago...
Oh, what a dumbass I was back then. Forgive me. IE4/NS4 can sometimes make people rather psychotic.
popup window "absolute positioning" or "floating divs" should be some terms neerajpn47 should be searching for.
I'm still waiting for the day IE can catch up so that we can just safely use "position: fixed". I had this idea a few monthes ago to change my stratigy and start off with fixed positioning first, then code for "backward"-compatibility. Code for non-IE browser would, in theory, be more straight-forward and efficient. Never really had the time to actually take action though.

IE7 and 8 can do position:fixed

The story behind mine is that I'm stuck in between new and old libraries I've written, old ones written before IE7 got out. Turns out some bad decisions were made back then, other bad decisions were made when I started writing new ones.
