Please notice that browsers usually block your javascript from resizing a tabbed window...
For instance, the following will work only if in a standalone window.
Notice that in this script I'm delaying the execution of the resize in order to avoid multiple consecutive resizes due to lag in the firing-off of the events:
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
	window.onresize = doResize;
	var interv;
	function doResize(){
		window.clearInterval(interv);
		interv = window.setInterval("resize()",500);
	}
	function resize()
	{
		window.moveTo(0, 0);
		window.resizeTo(screen.width, screen.height);
		alert("resizzzed !");
		window.clearInterval(interv);
	}
</script>

Looking at this script, I suggest the following changes to adhere to best practices

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
	window.onresize = function() { // no need to name the function if that is all you do in the event
		// do not use interval if you do not need interval
                // using quotes in a timeout/interval is an implicit EVAL and not good practice
		window.setTimeout(resize,500); 
	}
	function resize() {
		window.moveTo(0, 0);
		window.resizeTo(screen.width, screen.height);
	}
</script>
<body>
