Is there a way I can open a page in the current window when I do a form submit?

Here is my code.
<form name="airForm" id="airForm" onsubmit=fun()>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
<script language="javascript">
function fun(){
window.open("http://google.com", "_self");

It works fine if I change the 'submit' to a 'button'.

<form name="airForm" id="airForm" >
<input type="button" value="Submit" onClick=fun()>

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Gopinath.

A form submit stays in the same window. No need to be using JavaScript.
