Google Chrome Will Block Tab-Under Behavior

Google is working on blocking tab-under behavior in Chrome, according to a document seen by Bleeping Computer.

For users unfamiliar with the jargon, Google considers tab-under behavior when an unsuspecting user is scrolling or clicking on a page, but the site duplicates the current page in another tab and shows an ad or a new website in the page the user was initially reading.
Well, uBo is already doing this using $popunder, and ABP has delayed indefinitely a fix.
