    The window.resizeTo() method is what you need there, but it's normally not a good idea to perform that type of action, as it tends to upset people who visit the page.

    I agree with the previous replies.

    IMHO you would have similar results with

    Fortunately decent browsers allow you to turn off web pages ability to do resizing.
