You want to open a web browser and hide it? What about using urlread instead?
[stat,h] = web('');
This the the window be visible, but the contents is invisible.
To hide the window:
Let's ask Yair, if there is a more direct solution, which looks less like I'm stammering. Bur at least, it works.

Haven't you tried surfing the web in MATLAB, only to have the boss man come in?

does it work? I need to use web function to access the webpage to active online server, but I don't want the application users to see it.

[~,h] = web('whatever')
There are some methods in there that might work, but these aren't documented and aren't guaranteed to work. Some relevant ones I saw: hide() and setVisible().
@Kye, I guess you could have "Hide Stuff the Boss Can't See" quick access toolbar button :)
