Google Chrome to block JavaScript redirects on web page URL clicks

0

Google Chrome will soon be able to block JavaScript redirects when users click on a web page link that opens a URL in either a new window or new tab.

For those unfamiliar, when inserting a link into an HTML page, an author can include the target=“_blank” attribute to tell a web browser to open a link in a new tab. While useful for site owners, this attribute has a known security issue due to the fact that a newly opened page can utilize a JavaScript redirect to open a different URL than the one specified in a site’s HTML code.
