One of my largest pet peeves with using Google Chrome in the work place was that there was not an option to allow popups from a webpage. Each time there was a popup you would have to manually allow it, instead of setting a rule that allowed all popups from a single website. Apparently I wasn’t the only one and now the latest stable version of Chrome allows for this rule to be set.
How to allow popups in Google chrome.
Sometimes you don’t want pop-ups to ever be blocked for a certain site. If that’s the case, follow these steps to allow pop-ups:
- Visit the site where you want pop-ups to always appear.
- Click the Pop-ups Blocked alert at the bottom right-hand corner of the browser tab.
- Select Always show pop-ups from (site).
If you want to change this setting for the site at a later point, follow these steps:
- Visit the site again.
- Click the Manage pop-ups alert at the bottom right-hand corner of the browser tab.
- Deselect Always show pop-ups from (site).
Now Chrome becomes a viable alternative in my work place, where popups are required to view pdf’s. Thanks to the development team Chrome is becoming better and better every day, even now allowing for plugins and addons. I forsee a day when Chrome gives FireFox a run for it’s money, I just hope it doesn’t cause hard feelings.
