Default Ultimate Window Focus

Everyone (who is interested that is)

I know how to make a window focused so that it is on top of other browser windows, but here is what I am wondering...is it posible to make a browser window focused on top of every window, such as on top of Outlook or any other program?

Not really. If two tried to do that which would win?
You can try things like onblur=self.focus but often this just results in the taskbar icon flashing.
You used to be able to have a system wide modal message box using VBScript:
Code:
MsgBox "Hello!", vbSystemModal, "System Modal"
I think that only produces an application modal box nowadays too.
