In mivox's example, notice all the code after "page," . This is called the feature string, and it determines which window features will be present. It works very differently when it is omitted from the argument, or if an empty string is included, or if even one feature parameter is declared.
If you don't hand the open() method any string at all, all the new window's features will be set to their individual default values.
However, if you pass an empty features string, the browser opens a window with all features turned off.
If you use the parameters string to set even one value, then
all the other features are turned off -- you do not need to explicitly say =no or =0
A second important point is make very sure to not include any spaces or line breaks inside this features parameter string. Netscape will choke.
Here's a tutorial about window features that's pretty thorough:

Now, please excuse me while I climb on my soapbox for a minute ;) In many situations it is a useful courtesy to give a new window a status bar. When a new window sits blank for a while, the visitor gets antsy (the old rule of give them something to see in a maximum of 8 seconds).
When you include a status bar, your visitors can see if things are hanging or just slow to render. Without the status bar, you will lose them more often -- the X that closes the new window is an easy target and most people are quick on trigger.
