create a hidden popup window?

Hi,
I am testing the browser to see whether the browser supports popups (thanks to xp sp2!) - have resolved this but quite a ugly window appearing briefly - would like this to be totally transparent to the user and just display a msg if it doesnt work

any ideas?

function check_popup() {
var win = window.open('','','width=1,height=1,scrollbars=no');
if(!win) alert ('*** WARNING: Popups are not enabled ***');
win.close();
}

How about something like this:
  window.open('','','width=1,height=1,scrollbars=no, screenX=5000, screenY=5000');

This way, the popup will execute, but it will do so offscreen...

or not.

minimum size of popups in real browsers is 100x100 to avoid these porn site methods...

window.open('','','width=1,height=1,scrollbars=no, screenX=5000, screenY=5000');

should be:

window.open('','','width=1,height=1,scrollbars=no,left=5000,top=5000');
