Yes, but not really. In some browsers it will appear differently. Opera, for instance, will show the address in a little bar just above the content of the page. The way to get the address out of the title bar in most browsers though, is either to view the page locally, or to allow the address bar (location bar) in the pop up. To do this with the wizard, check the box for location bar.

It used to be possible to do this live, and older browsers will still do it this way with the code you are already using. But, with the advanced security features of most modern browsers, it isn't possible.

Here is a link to the W3Schools page on the window.open() method:


As you will see, there are other specifications available, like fullscreen. It is an IE only specification and it (or some of the others) might get you what you want but, there is nothing for this in any other browser and the IE only specifications will cause an error in other browsers if they are not shielded from them by code branching.
