Creating Customized Browser Controls

Whenever you use JavaScript to open a new browser window, you have the option of removing the browser’s controls, including the Back, Forward, Reload, and Print buttons. However, doing so limits what visitors can do, or at least what they think they can do. Even when removed, most of the controls are still available using the keyboard shortcuts, but many visitors may not know that.

Using JavaScript, though, you can add controls directly into the Web page that mimic those in the browser control bar. This gives you jurisdiction over these controls, allowing you to show or hide them as needed.
