Report Extension for intercepting new window/tab requests? in Extensions Posted December 23, 2016 · Edited December 23, 2016 by astromedia Thx for response. Yeh, lot of sites creating new windows/tabs who nows how (i doubt redirect is right word) and bypassing everything that is supposed to prevent it (and some of them have enough insolence to show js popup "please wait" afterwards), thats why i was convinced hooking to browser events would be most solid way to do this if would api allowed that. I will wait if somebody else will post something relevant or at least before Maxthon 5 will be in more complete state and after that i will take some time to look at the api and try to figure it out somehow i suppose. Browser addon development is sadly not my strong side (i was more succesful writing my own browser using chrome core and dotnet but it was too time consuming and far from ideal) but its nice to try something new if its documented well enough and if i find it Still i would prefer if somebody more experienced would take a look at that.
