I'm trying to use a string from a JavaScript variable in a window.open function. My function looks like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function url1() {
    var linkstr1 = "'http://google.com'";
    window.open(linkstr1);
}
</script>

But when I call this function from an a href, the resulting url is:

http://www.mysite.com/directory/'http://google.com'

How do I properly use a variable as a window.open url? Thanks.
