you cannot always close the whole browser, but you can close a browser window in n seconds:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
  setTimeout("self.close()", n)
//--> </SCRIPT>

A doubleclick is only recognized with netscape Communicator 4; however here's a trick that does something when you click twice on a button:

<INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" VALUE="doubleclick me" onClick="test()">

and the function test looks like this:

var count = 0
function test(){
  count++
  if (count==2){
   var MyWin = new window()
   MyWin.open("newwindow.html")
  } else setTimeout("count--", 500)
}

so the user has 500 milliseconds to click twice on the button, otherwise the counter is set back.

If you have questions about this, please leave me a comment here, I'll try to answer asap. :-)
