How to open a URL in a new window in JavaScript?

For example, to open a new window to browse “http://www.systutorials.com“.

Open the URL in a new window:

url = "http://www.systutorials.com";
window.open(url);

Some browser will open the window in a new tab depending on the configuration. If you want to force the browser to open a new window, a tip is to use code as follows.

window.open(
    url, "window name",
    "height=200,width=200,modal=yes,alwaysRaised=yes");

(it works on most browsers while the browser may still choose to ignore it)

Additionally, the “window.close()” method can close the window.

Full syntax of the “window.open()” method can be found in:
