How can I auto-exit a web-browser after loading a certain page and showing it to the user for a while. I received the suggestion to launch an external program but that has the disadvantage that it is not OS-independent. What I would like to have is a solution based on HTML, JavaScript or Jave

You might be able to do that with a program written in any language that can generate Windows programs:

first, launch the browser as a "child application" with the name of the page as a command parameter (that worked with Mosaic and older Netscape versions but as far as I know it still works, i.e.
[[ NETSCAPE.EXE http://www.anywhere.com  ]]   )

then, let the program wait for the specified time and then halt he execution of the browser.

I hope I could help
