I guess I am asking for a pop-under solution.  I tried to do

w=window.open('blah')
w.blur()
window.focus()

but that doesn't work at all.

Any suggestions.

Hi,
which OS and which browser have you tried?
How do you run this code? onload or onclick event?
Thanks.

There is no reliable cross browser method of doing this, you may get a bit of luck with this

But not in Chrome,

OS and Browser doesn't matter.  I need a global solution.  I have a feeling its not possible.

There is no global solution, it's a bad practise to start with.
