Can I close the iPhone browser using JavaScript



In the iPhone is there a way I can use JavaScript to close the browser and return to the home screen? After the last page a wizard I am calling out to another iPhone app (ex: maps) and I do NOT what the user to come back to the browser screen when they are done. My backup plan is to have a "Complete" page but that is not the best experience for the client.

Expanding on Anders: window.close() will did what you want. How can I scan barcodes on iOS?According to the Window doc page, if you try and close an window not opened via javascript, the user will be prompted to confirm. .

Knowing Apple, this may not be possible with JavaScript. Have you tried anything yet? If not, try one of these guys out:.
javascript:self.close(); window.close(); 
EDIT: I found this thru google, this may bypass the confirmation box, although I don't think it works with the modern browsers anymore:.
window.opener='x'; window.close(); 
I just checked, doesn't look like it will job (IE7 box pops up, FF3 does nothing, Opera 9.61 doesnt have a prompt box at all)..
