I need to warn the user with some message when the user tries to close the browser window by clicking on the 'X' close icon on the browser window's title bar.
There is a Solution. In our company's Intranet application , if we close the window by clicking the X mark instead of not logging out properly, a new popup window opens saying you haven't logged out properly and then automatically closes.
So far i havent tried to lookout the code for it, i'l lookout after sometime and post it here..

onunload is what fires when the user leaves, but it does it for every action including refresh, back, close, links, etc.
PLUS onunload popup windows are blocked by popup blockers
