The JavaScript 'alert("string");' will show a little dialog box containing the text "string" with an OK button, but i don't know how to make it minimize automatically.

Example for a button :

<input type=button name="MyBtn" value="Push Me" onClick="alert('This is an warning')">

Or if you want to show it when the page is loaded :

<html>
<head>
<script>
function showMsg()
{
   alert("this is the message");
}
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="showMsg()">
....
....
</body>
</html>

Hope this helps

This will open an add page:
 
<SCRIPT language='javascript'>
  var mywin=window.open("myAdd.html","myPopup","width=200,height=200");
</script>


Making it minimize, I don't know, but you can close it automatically like this:

mywin.close();

This
    onload="opener.focus()"
would focus the opening window
or
    onload="setTimeout('opener.focus()',5000)"
would focus the opening window after 5 seconds...

Also
    onload="window.resizeTo(0,0)"
will minimize in IE but will ignored by Netscape.

This is a little off topic, but for the browser detection part, try this link, it's pretty damn cool:

Only thing I can find that might be any good is this hope it helps

Put in Head

<script>
function winopen(){
        win = window.open("YOUR PAGE NAME", "newWin", "toolbar=yes,location=yes,directories=no,status=no, menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=no,copyhistory=yes,width=400,height=260")
        startTime()
}

function startTime(){

        var time= new Date();
        hours= time.getHours();
        mins= time.getMinutes();
        secs= time.getSeconds();
        closeTime=hours*3600+mins*60+secs;
        closeTime+=3; // Amount of time that the window stays open in seconds
        Timer();

}

function Timer(){
        var time= new Date();
        hours= time.getHours();
        mins= time.getMinutes();
        secs= time.getSeconds();
        curTime=hours*3600+mins*60+secs
        if (curTime>=closeTime){
                if (win.closed == false){
                        win.close()}}
        else{
                window.setTimeout("Timer()",1000)}
}
</script>
