I'm assuming you mean a new browser window and not a new browser, and that's done with the target-new attribute to the URL link (see: http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-css3-hyperlinks-20040224/). I'm assuming here that the person is coming from a link on a splash page of some sort and you want the next page to open in a new window. Why you would want to do this is beyond me. It annoys people if they notice you doing it, as there's no benefit to them for the action occuring, and if they don't notice that you did it it means their "back" button no longer works, and that's one of the most commonly used interface items that is bad to break it.
