PHP is server-side, not client side.
That said, what you could do is simply make use of window.onunload or window.onclose in javascript to bring up a second window/page..
of course, anyone with half a brain and a popup-stopper won't get that page :)

I'm trying to figure out a way of detecting when a user closes the browser,
or if they leave the site.  If they do this I'd like to change a value in
the database, i.e:

if (browser is closed by user or they leave site)
// run php code to update database

Any help much appreciated.
