Bug Description

When WebView.newViewRequested isn't implemented, all navigations and window open requests are done in the current view. However, sites can navigate the current view with window.open() or a link with target="_blank" without WebView.navigationRequested being emitted

Note, the same occurs for subframes too (except window.open() in a subframe will navigate the main frame if WebView.newViewRequested isn't implemented)

The issue here is that delegating navigations to the browser behaves differently depending on whether the window has an opener or not (I'm not sure why). If a window doesn't have an opener, we get all top-level navigations. If it does have an opener, then we only get cross-domain navigations. When calling window.open() without support for creating new windows, blink sets window.opener on the top-level window (like it would for a newly created window) before calling in to content.

The fix for bug 1470268 will most likely resolve this
