This is a misunderstanding, I think. As of WinXP SP1, IE will not allow the
creation of 'chromeless' windows (no title bar or close/minimize/hide
buttons; <http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex8/chromeless.htm>). As of
WinXP SP2, the status bar will be present by default and any attempt to open
a window off-screen will be thwarted, among other restrictions (see 'Window
Restrictions' on:

As an aside, you can check through the forum/wiki threads Scoble points to
here: <http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/2004/06/16.html#a7779>; they're
mostly dealing with standards support in IE, but a few IE team members have
popped in to discuss & have given a fair bit of info on what lies ahead for
IE 6 & 7 on Windows.
