Hi, I'm not sure if I should ask this question here,

but is it possible to detect whether a child-browser window is opened?

For example: Window A has a link that will open Window B. And Window
A later needs to detect Window B's existence in order to take actions 
accordingly. I know you can name your window using "target" in <a> tag, 
but I'm not sure how to detect it's existence. I imagine using JavaScript's
DOM object?
