I'll second the complaint about maximizing page size and dual monitors, also think it obnoxious on any monitor - presumably i surf with my browser the size I want- which is never maximized.(I like to know who is popping what up behind me, so I can squash'em!) I use opera, not sure about the multi window.
Opera 6 has two modes: Native MDI (one window, with web pages displayed in child windows inside the main window). New SDI mode - just like ie/nn (mono windows).
In mdi mode, a js maximize just takes the current page out to the max deminsions of the main Opera window. It doesn't resize the main overall Opera parent window.
In sdi mode, a js max acts just as it does in ie/nn.
SDI mode also has "tabs" where you can open multiple pages in the main window too (confusing, but awesome choices). But those "tabbed" windows are always the same size as the main window just like ie/nn/moz.
>I agree... Don't maximize someone's browser window unless you ask first. You'll lose half your visitors doing stuff like that based on annoyance alone.
The unique and return visits have increased at a steady rate; this script is used on all 100 pages, so it's no big surprise.
>i surf with my browser the size I want- which is never maximized
The reason it's there is because an increasing number of portals and link pages are pushing websites into small boxes where they can advertise around the borders, distorting the presentation. This script works instantly to over-ride that, but does not change the size of the window.
