Load Google Chrome in "Popup Window" mode

I'd like to load a URL from the command line using google chrome.   I know that is as easy as:

C:\>  chrome.exe "http://someurl.html"

But i don't want it to load in the default window (with toolbar and tabs) but in "stripped-down" window similar to one you see in a popup add.  It usually shows the URL textbox but shows no tabs or toolbars.  

I investigated chome's command-line options which are extensive, but i was unable to find one that would do this.  Maybe it can be done with a simple html page that uses JavaScript to accomplish it?  I don't know.

Can anyone tell me how to get this done?

Thanks in advance.

Browsers today don't typically allow that. Instead what you see now is a modal window. Otherwise browsers tend to block pop ups.

I have just uninstalled Google Chrome in favour of Firefox (again), but I can tell you that I had Chrome set so that it always opened popup windows as new tabs in the same window, and had it set so that it did not allow scripts that tried to open windows with no navigational elements such as the Address bar.  If this is intended for your own personal or company use, then fair enough, but if this is for the public then I go along with padas in suggesting that you shouldn't really be trying to force something on viewers because it is unlikely to work for all of them and (personal opinion here) it might annoy them enough to leave the site.
