[webkit-help] In webkit browsers window.open() does not respect dimensions specified

The following html code block will open a small window of the specified
dimensions in chromium & seamonkey... However, in webkit browsers the
results vary. In jumanji and dwb the page is opened in a new tab. In
Epiphany and surf the page is opened in a separate window, but the window
does not respect the specified dims, instead it is opened maximized.

<script type="text/javascript">
function open_win()

<input type="button" value="Open Window" onclick="open_win()">


The behavior exibited by chromium/seamonkey is desirable from my
perspective because this provides a useful method for creating popups. Is
the behavior exibited by the webkit browsers by design? If so why and how
then should I create a pop up window of custom dimensions? Thanks.
