Google Chrome browser ready to block sites redirecting users to other sites
Google chrome browser will block sites that redirects you to another uniform resource locator (url) in early next year.
In defending the reason for the redirection, Google says it found that the redirect often comes from third-party content embedded in the page, and the page author didn’t intend the redirect to happen at all.
To address this issue, according to a post by Ryan Schoen, Product Manager says “in Chrome 64 all redirects originating from third-party iframes will show an infobar instead of redirecting, unless the user had been interacting with that frame. This will keep the user on the page they were reading, and prevent those surprising redirects.”
It also accepted that one example that causes user frustration is when clicking a link, it opens the desired destination in a new tab,while the main window navigates to a different, unwanted page. In curbing this problem Chrome 65 will be introduced to handle it.
Google Chrome is a freeware web browser developed by Google. It was first released in September 2008, for Microsoft Windows, and was later ported to Linux, macOS, iOS and Android. It’s the most used browser on the internet with Apple Safari contending closely.
