opening a smaller browser on top of the main browser

I am opening a second window on a website for sub-menu items but it opens in a tab in IE9. How do I prevent tabs from opening... preferably in most of the popular browsers?

Below is the code that works for the size but it only opens as a separate window if I hold the shift key when I click.

<Script Language="javascript">
 <!-- Begin
 var intwidth;
 var intheight;
 if(intwidth>0&&intheight>0) {window.resizeTo(intwidth,intheight,
 "toolbar=no,location=no,status=no,menubar=no,resiz able=no");
 // End -->
