Google’s Chrome browser will get an improved popup blocker to protect users against unwanted content. About 1 out of 5 of all reports from Chrome users on the desktop, are about unwanted content such as third-party websites with links disguised as play button or transparent overlays that capture all clicks and then open a new tab or new window.

Are we talking Chrome Browser on Windows or Android? I know it doesn’t work on Android Chrome.
