Even though it’s slightly different than other browsers Google Chrome does have a simpler way to handle pop-up windows.
Everyone agrees, pop-up windows are one of the annoyances of the world wide web and that’s the reason all modern day browsers come with the default setting to not allow pop-up windows, which is a good thing. But at times you might visit a site that intentionally wanted to pop-up a legitimate window. For these circumstances you would have to configure your browser to allow pop-up windows.
Handling pop-up windows in Google Chrome is slightly different than other browsers, you would have to look in a different place to set this up.
Go to Chrome “Preferences” (“Options” if you are on Windows).
Click on the “Under the Hood” tab. Under “Privacy” click on the “Content settings…” button.
Then on the Content Settings dialog click on the “Allow all sites to show pop-ups” option. If you leave this option open to all the sites then just be careful to turn it off once you are done.
On the other hand if you wish to allow pop-up windows for just one or few websites then you can use the “Do not allow any site to show pop-ups” option and then click on the “Exceptions…” button to add websites that you wanted to allow pop-up windows.
Even though the settings are slightly different Google Chrome has a simple way to handle pop-up windows. Make use of it.
