No can do as far as I know. I think the only power javascript has over the browser is the resizable attribute you mentioned. I doubt people would be very impressed if you took away their power to close the window ... less experienced people may no be aware that you can also do it by the option in the file menu.

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
I agree. Here's the link:
