comment conclusive way to block “onunload” spam (“are you sure you want to navigate away?”)
@seagull, I feel your pain and agree 1000%. Sadly, I can't offer a perfect solution. I've used chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/alert-control/… myself. It unfortunately breaks ALL alert boxes but for me personally, I'd prefer all alerts to be broken over having onbeforeunload alerts. NOTHING is more infuriating than disobedient software. If I have a tab and I close it, I don't care if the popup is a genuine and real message: "Closing this tab will make you forfeit your entire bank balance." I clicked the X and I expect that tab to CLOSE.
