Google Chrome gets a new feature that increases security when you click on web links that open URLs in a new window or tab.
When inserting links in an HTML page, authors can include the target = ”_ blank” feature that tells the browser to open the link in a new tab when clicked.
In 2018, to increase security, the Apple made a change to Safari which requires all HTML links that use the target = ”_ blank” to automatically use the noopener attribute. With this feature enabled, even if one website does not use rel = ”nooopener” in the URLs, the browser will keep them safe.
This feature is currently enabled in Chrome Canary and is expected to be released with Chrome 88 in January 2021.
