Currently var a = document.createElement("a"); a.href = "http://www.mozilla.org"; a.click(); doesn't work, but per spec it should. http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#following-hyperlinks-2 ("Let source be the browsing context that contains the Document object with which subject in question is associated." is vague, but will be fixed https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=26310 )
Note that I expect we have old bugs on this that will need dupping forward.
