The window object is either a browser window or a frame. Many methods of the window object have been listed in this appendix already. Those are left out of the description of the window object.

closed

FF, IE 4

Read-only: true if a window has been closed and false if it is still open. The window referenced is generally created using the window.open() method.

if (my_window.closed == false)
