    That can't be done in all browsers and the ratio is getting smaller.

    What makes you think there would be a way to prevent a user from being
    able to close a window?

    Why do you want to remove normal, standard window functionalities from a
    window? Why do you want to remove usual ways of closing, minimizing,
    maximizing a window? Why do you want to prevent users from using the
    standard command buttons that allows users to close, minimize or
    maximize a window?

    Finally, what makes you believe that you can force a popup in the users'
    browsers?

    The titlebar is shown by default in MSIE 6 and in MSIE 7 and so is the
    system command icons. Status bar is now shown by default and by force in
    MSIE 7, regardless of what window.open() script requests. Popup window
    are resized or repositioned when they do not meet users enforced
    requirements and security requirements.


    "Script-initiated windows will be displayed fully, with the Internet
    Explorer title bar and status bar. (...)
    Internet Explorer has been modified to not turn off the status bar for
    any windows. The status bar is always visible for all Internet Explorer
    windows."

    Address bar in IE 7 is also present, rendered, regardless of scripted
    window.open() requests: "the address bar is also important for users to
    see in pop-up windows. A missing address bar creates a chance for a
    fraudster to forge an address of their own. To help thwart that, IE7
    will show the address bar on all internet windows to help users see
    where they are."

    Why do you need to control the users' window basic functionalities to
    begin with?
