window.alert() will not activate parent page (removed)
If a document in a background tab calls window.alert() then the call to alert() will return immediately; the dialog will be shown to the user when they switch to the tab. A UI indicator will be set so the user is aware of the pending alert dialog. This removes the ability to use window.alert() to bring a tab to the front against the user’s will.
Status in Chromium
Removed (tracking bug) in:
