Can pop-ups open as tabs in browser windows? This is on an iPad and Safari.

  • Can you give an example? Is the pop up a whole new window or is it contained in the window which you are browsing?

Well, yes the pop ups in Safari open in a new window if you allow them to do it. You normally have a choice between "Allow" and "Block". If you "Allow", it will simply open the pop up in a new tab on the same window. But sometimes, you have a choice between "Open" and "Cancel" which means, that if you "Open", it will open in the indicated app.


  1. Allow/Block Allow/Block
  2. Open/Cancel Open/Cancel
