along with window.open() malicious sites also love those features.
to make browsing safe (especially for kids, non techies) we need to
see pages listed at
(even if you report phishing they point to new renamed site.
in this case http://ndia-tvc.org not the phishing site, but it just is
the infested site )
And we should have an alternative to window.open()
may by a CONTROL attribute for <IFRAME> tag.
<IFRAME src="http://google.com" CONTROL> </IFRAME>
will create a dragable/movable IFRAME with title bar, a pop-up button.
If user clicks on pop-up button it pops out of the webpage.
