Can we change the title of alert box displayed through Javascript?

P: n/a
Hi All,

Using javascript i am displaying an alert...
Is there is a way to change the title of the alert box displayed
through Javascript

Here is my simple javascript code
<script type = "text/javascript">
alert('Hi All !!!')
</script>

When I run the above code I can see an alert box with the content "Hi
All" ...
But the title of the alert box displayed in firefox is "The page at
http://localhost says"...
Is there is a way to change this text to my own coustomized text..?

Is there is any thing a client side programmer had got to do with this
title text..?

Is there is a way to change the cursor pointer to cursor hand when the
user moves his pointer on the ok button on the alert box ..?

Thanks in advance..

No UA that I know of would allow that to be changed. It is an important
part of the JavaScript security model.

Again no.

The alert box is not a Javascript function, it is provided by the hosting
user agent. The hosting UA doesn't even have to display an 'OK' button
and may, in fact, provide others. (IIRC, Opera offers a 'Stop running
all javascript on this page' type option as well.)

Use a popup DIV instead. You can make it say anything you like then.
