ha mo, Jean-Bernard Valentaten, Rohit Gupta,


Basically you cannot capture that event through js, since
it's handeled by the MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes) and
not passed to js.
But, as a matter of fact, before the brower is shut down and 
removed from memory, it unloads the page, which of course 
triggers the onUnload event.
So what you can do, is handle that event.
But please, please, please do not pop open a new window. Nobody
likes new windows that pop-up when they unload a page (or shut
their browser).
HTH,
Jean
