Javascript - Open a given URL in a new window/tab by clicking a button

Use the following code to open a link in a new window rather than a new tab, as you can see, I've used a button, but the same onclick="..." can be used on anything to make it open the specified URL in a new window:

<input type="button" value="button name" onclick="window.open('http://www.website.com/page')" />

You can also add variables to it to stop it from showing specific browser traits for example, the menu bar. Parameters can be assigned as follows:

onclick="window.open(this.href,'popUpWindow','height=400,width=600,left=10,top=10,,scrollbars=yes,menubar=no'); return false;"
