there are two approaches to involve it.
1.
window.open(url);
window.opener.close();

2.
window.location.replace(url);


example:
<a href="#" on*click="window.location.replace('http://www.stefli.com/');">stefli</a>


This guy is so lazy!!!<br />There is nothing left!

Option 1 is really bad and browser security should prevent it
Option 2 will fail with users with JS disabled.

A better option for #2
