Both IE7 and Internet Explorer 8, in Windows 7 are restricted to a minimum window of 250 pixels in width, and only 100 pixels in height, according to Microsoft. “One of my customers came to me and asked why IE8 cannot open a 140px wide window. Well, if you drag IE border and resize IE window to minimum, it can be as small as 250px wide x 100px tall. That’s the minimum window, which means you cannot 140px wide window anymore with IE7 or later,” revealed. “That’s the minimum window, which means you cannot 140px wide window anymore with IE7 or later. But if you use open Method. If you want to set the window to the smallest, I think you need to use resizeTo Method. When you use this method, you can set height to 58px and width to 230px, which’s smallest content size. You can also use showModalDialog Method and showModelessDialog Method, and these contraints apply the same to these methods,” Nam Seungho. In the screenhot, you’ll get an idea ‘how IE8 running in Windows 7 compares to rival browsers?’. The minimum IE window is by far the bulkiest, when compared with Firefox 3.6, Opera 10.50 and Google Chrome 4.0.
