    Please don't do it! Interfering with the way people use the UI is bad practice. Just think of the "poor" guys with 30" ACD: what's the point of a 2560x1600 browser window? :eek: ;)

    Yes, I instantly leave any site that resizes my browser window.

    ditto! if you expand a window to full size while I'm surfing in OS X it makes me hate you and your website.

    Ok Ok Ok....

    I didn't expect to run into the fashion police so quick!

    perhaps I should explain and ask the question in a different way.
    I designed a fluid layout with CSS that goes to s*** under a certain view port width, (less than 880). So I just want to make sure that I can make the user bowser go at least that wide onLoad.

    thanks

    It's still poor etiquette. Either make your design more fluid or rely on the visitor resizing their browser if they want to.

    Fit your design to your user, not your user to your design. ;)

    sorry, we tend to specialize in useful advice here, we don't dole out tips on how to frustrate your visitor. If you insist on using annoying JS tricks I'd suggest checking http://www.htmlgoodies.com and see what they have to offer
