Not possible.. Unless you make an activex control do it then it will only work in IE and most users have their security settings to not allow unsigned activex controls.

yes ... and it would be on of the annoying things you could do in a webapp ... never ever try to override user settings ... this is a rule of thumb for good design ...

however, in case you just want to avoid your own pages added to the history you may use the location.replace(); method in your app ...

kind regards
