I have a popup with a link on it. I need the popup to close when the link is activated and the new page to open in the parent window. It must be easier than it seems.

Safer to do it all in the link since Netscape tend to forget things onunload

<a href="#"
onClick="
window.opener.location='http:\\www.experts-exchange.com';
window.close();
return false">change and close</a>
