What is the big difference between alerts from unload and alerts in general? Alerts are not particularly useful for anything besides debugging, and pagehide/unload handlers is a place where they I've found them particularly useful for debugging.
Do we have at least anecdotal evidence that many sites are showing alerts from unload? When I'm seeing a site that tries to prevent me from leaving it, it's always by returning a string from onbeforeunload.
