Maximize pop up window from another site with JavaScript

I have a link in my site and I want that, when it is clicked, opens a new pop up window maximized (with for example http://www.anothersite.com/, not with a page that is hosted in my web). Because it is hosted in another site, I cannot use something like this (I cannot edit that page because it's in other site):

<script language="JavaScript1.2">
<!--
top.window.moveTo(0,0);
if (document.all) {
top.window.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight);
}
else if (document.layers||document.getElementById) {
if (top.window.outerHeight<screen.availHeight||top.window.outerWidth<screen.availWidth){
top.window.outerHeight = screen.availHeight;
top.window.outerWidth = screen.availWidth;
}
}
//-->
</script>

I would like that the page "maximizes" to highest resolution available , no matter if the user has 800x600 or 1024x768 or another....
I don't know if it's possible to maximize, or only simulates this, resizing the window to these measures.
Thank you very much for your help. ;)

Hi

Use window.open:

var width=500;
var height=300;
if (screen) {
   width = screen.width;
   height = screen.height;
}
window.open(URL,NAME,'width='+width+',height='+height);


If you want it totally full screen, though, in IE, you can do this:

window.open(URL,NAME,'fullscreen=yes');

create a local page (on your website) that opens the window and sizes it, then redirect it to the other site:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<script language="JavaScript1.2">
<!--
top.window.moveTo(0,0);
if (document.all) {
  top.window.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight);
}
else if (document.layers||document.getElementById) {
  if (top.window.outerHeight<screen.availHeight||top.window.outerWidth<screen.availWidth){
     top.window.outerHeight = screen.availHeight;
     top.window.outerWidth = screen.availWidth;
  }
}

location = "http://www.otherdomain.com/othersite.html";

//-->
</script>
</HEAD>
</HTML>
