closing windows

As part of an upcoming development effort it looks like the users would like the ability to click a link and launch another window/page. Subsequent pages may be launched from within the newly launched pages or the orginal page.
Is there a means that you can point me to which will permit me to keep track of the windows being opened and by offering a single click have them cleaned up when the user is done with them?
Thanks
Chris

When you say "page" and "window", are you talking about "web pages" and "web browser windows"?
If so, then are you working on a Java-based web browser, or is the web browser something like Internet Explorer or Mozilla?
