    Cool Hot to disable address bar?

    Hello there!

    I created some extensions but ran into some weird problems:

    I want the user to click on a button and then a new window should open. No problem so far (some JS function.. open blabla)... I was trying to set a fixed width (seems to work), made it resizable (works) and want to disable the location or address bar. No idea what the correct name is...

    I was using "menubar=0,location=0" but Chrome ignores the JS parameters :| I can still see the address in the new window (at least i cannot change it)... but still I want to save as much screen space as possible. Any ideas?

    Thank you

    You can't remove them. Like you mentioned, Chrome ignores those parameters. :/

    Why would anyone want to disable the address bar ?

    @Waha

    Could we get CG to open a new window instead of a tab ?

    Space constraints in your pop-up windows.

    Keep it in the CG thread, and also be more specific. ;P

    In case anyone still cares, there is a way of disable the address bar on a new window in a chrome extension, using the chrome.windows.open API call (http://code.google.com/chrome/extens...#method-create) and specifying the type as "popup": chrome.windows.create({url: "www.example.com", type: 'popup'});However, I am trying to find a way to do this via javascript outside of an extension, and no luck so far...
