Hi
The setup in our clients enivronment is such that all applications are accessed by first logging in from a login page which acts a common entry point to all applications.
Now the client wants that after logging in, the subsequent pages not have the address bar.
So, i added a dummy page between the login page and the forst page of our application and in this dummy page, i call the window.open javascript method and in this way i go to the first page of our application.in the window.open method, i pass location=no as an argument.

Is there any better way to do it? I'm a bit sceptical about the approach we adopted?

Shane,
What are you trying to accomplish by hiding the address bar? The subject hints at security. There is not security in hiding this from the user as a sophisticated user or hacker can still get it.
