If I used following to close child window, it will give alert message like are sure want to close window? before closing window in IE only(NOT IN NETSCAPE).
If I used
self.close() it will ask alert message in Netscape Close Child_window? (NOT IN IE)
I don't want to see any alert message in any browser when I close child window. Is there any way I can achieve this?

I am not getting it - probably it depends on some security settings.
What you could try, is to have in you parent window a function, that closes popup, and than call it frop popup, when you need it.
So if you opend popup with
you will have
function closeWnd(){ wnd.close();}
and from your popup opener.closeWnd.
You could also try to have in parent window function closeChild(wnd){
at this case you don't need to hold a pointer to an open window. In a popup you will say
