This is subject to the "halting problem" if the page uses scripting.
The presence of window.open doesn't guarantee that it is possible to
execute it.  The absence of window.open doesn't mean that it cannot be
constructed at run time, and in the general case, it will not be
possible to determine whether than can happen in finite time.

I'm not though, sure what question you were really trying to ask.
