I use Chrome for browsing the web almost all the time
Starting from a few days ago I have had the page
http://www.gstatic.com/generate_204 open up in a new browser tab sometimes for seemingly no reason. I don’t know what is triggering it. It's always an empty page and it is titled "Untitled".
From Googling it looks like this has something to do with accessing http websites, but I don’t know what’s causing it to happen now, when it didn’t use to happen before. All I know is that the first time I saw this page, it was when I tried to access an HTTP page hosted on another computer connected to my router, and I wasn't able to do so because of the router’s settings.
Note that I am only mentioning this in case this is relevant, and it was the first time I ever remember seeing the gstatic page on this computer. My question is not about the http page hosted in a different computer on my router.
What exactly is this gstatic page and why is it popping up by itself?
Can/should I disable this page from popping up, or is it indicating any kind of problem with chrome or the computer?
