One flagrant design issue with web page is the 'alert' method.
You have to close the popup before you can close the window / tab!
Just stumbled on a malicious web page which spew some sounds file warning you have a virus and then made itself top most and kept an always open alert dialog (re-open it as soon as I close it)
I had to kill Chrome with the task manager, losing all my other tabs!!!
Now I wonder.... is there a way to disable model alert dialog that prevent tab closing in chrome?
Thanks for the interesting link!
They mention chrome extension in the link... Which I just tried one without success...
On the other hand I notice that once clicked the first popup, the second one has a checkbox "prevent further message box" (which I suspect is an inbuilt chrome feature)
I had the same problem and was about to mention the "prevent..." option but you found it already. I hate web pages that think they are making you like them and more likely to buy their product by trying to force you! What on earth do they hope to achieve?
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
I completely forgot that it was my turn on Friday
It must be because it's out fasting month and I get home so early (14:45 local time) from work, and I feel soooo sleepy these days that I fall asleep as I get home
But how could I forget that I was up for Friday, in any case. Ahhh Sorry
