FireFox allows you to do it, Internet Explorer allows you to do it, but guess what? There is no function within Google Chrome to give permission to a website to automatically allow popups. This means, that every time you try to open an external PDF, login screen, or game on some websites you are forced to click the allow button everytime.
This would seem like a no brainer to fix, almost immediately after launch. But here we are, months after Chrome’s initial release and there has yet to be a patch for this. Furthermore, I’m still waiting on Chrom Add-Ons that helped drive FireFox’s p0ularity. Unfortunately the lack of addons and now the lack of ability to allow popups based on domain have sealed the deal for me. It will be awhile before I start my Chrome browser up again anytime soon.
Also, if you feel like giving Google an ear full, drop a line over at their complaint department. There are plenty of other people pissed off that there is no way to allow popups in Google Chrome.
