>>Does anyone know how to do this in context menu in a (any) browser?

This might help...

1. Write a script that you want to execute.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" defer> window.open("http://developer.ebay.com","","height=800,width=800,lef +t=80,top=80,scrollbars=yes"); </SCRIPT>

2. Point to the script from your IE Menu Extensions. Here's an example of a generic installer (leveraging the excellent example from svsingh):

REGEDIT4 ; Replace the following values with your own information. ; ; <INTERNAL AND DISPLAY NAME> = Name of the context menu item. ; This will be seen in the navigation pane of the ; registry editor AND in your IE context menu. ; Use alphanumeric chars. Spaces are OK. ; <PATH_AND_HTM_FILE> = The path to the script file. Use double ; backslashes. For example: ; C:\\IEScripts\\foo.htm [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\<INTER +NAL AND DISPLAY NAME>] @="file://<PATH_AND_HTM_FILE>"

See MSDN for additional options that control which context menus in which the item will appear, and how to set the DWORD in the above .reg file: About the Browser > Controlling the Context Menus.
