Providing a custom title will usually only result in [Custom Title] - Windows Internet Explorer. Although I have send a 'provided by...' tacked on the end, so maybe possible.

But the "Provided By" stuff comes from something that the OEM installed on the machine, not something a website did. As far as I know, that "Microsoft Internet Explorer" is permanent.

Its all kept in registry and resource files.
However, since the specific browser in use puts that message there (i.e. "Microsoft Internet Explorer" ) your popup windows ARE already browser independant

Your popup windows are children of the parent browser. You can set the "Title" of the page to display what you want but it's up to the browser as to how it's treated (how it's displayed.

the document that your re calling for the popup (the one in the url variable) should have the title in it's title tag, that way you'll see the proper title in the popup window.

I've seen some use a simple hack of plenty of spaces - not sure how well it works across browsers/platforms.
