Tech Update : New Google Chrome security features will prevent malicious auto-redirects​

When we talk about Google Chrome , we automatically think about Online Safety. No other Browser could come near the flexibility Chrome provides when it’s about UI Experience. And in the Latest Update , it’s going to be heaven 😀

In Version 64, the developer channel of Chrome , we get to see Google Chrome will automatically counter surprise redirects from third-party content embedded into pages. When this happens, users will now remain on their current page, while the browser displays a small bar about the redirect. On mobile, this warning slides up from the bottom and includes a “Details” link to learn more.

Meanwhile, version 65 will deal with sites that try to deceive Chrome’s built-in pop-up blocker by opening the link that users want to visit in another tab, while the main window visits an unwanted page without user’s consent.

Google found that this type of malicious behavior is due to third-party iframes, with Chrome now blocking them unless a user has been directly interacting with that frame.

Google surely knows how to keep their customers happy. They are soon launching an Abusive Experiences Report in the Search Console so that site owners can find out if there are any bad experiences on their page.

Well , we really needed to deal with such kind of crap , and are super cool with Google taking the initiative.

(Google Chrome is made possible by the Chromium open source project and other open source software.)
