Feature request: DO NOT allow auto redirect to Play Store.

  • As all Android users may know, some websites will forward or pop up a Play Store link, and AUTOMATICALLY (without clicking anything at all, only by being on that site!!!), you will have Play Store window opened with the advertised app in question.
    Better would be, either a warning screen (where the back button should be enough to cancel the request), or if you didn't click on a Play Store app link (so if it was redirected from a website, for example, through javascript), ignore it TOTALLY.
    Have the Play Store windows only open if you REALLY clicked on an official Play Store link (or maybe even then, only after a YES/NO prompt).

  • Agree, must have thay feature

  • Can't be done biscot that will lead to adware war, besides it's a Google cover.

  • As a feature that works in every other browser I've currently got installed it's a bit baffling how this started happening in Opera.

    Firefox, Dolphin, Samsung's Browser and I think even Chrome give you the option.

  • Firefox and Dolphin doesn't do that due to adblock built-in support, otherwise all browsers works in the same manner. In part the cause could be the animation factor as in app itself and it's also interesting that apps interact in this regard.

  • bla bla bla bla... do it! .. or otherwise...

  • this is most annoying thing...suddenly opera mini is painful to use. to stop this play store redirect I switch to high data saving mode then again there instead of redirecting to play store these websites open a new tab

  • Google made that possible according with their goal and hidden agenda and you wish that his smaller brother will take action?

  • I've never been forwarded to Play Store automatically anymore (since several Opera versions), at most I get an Android pop-up asking if I want to open a link with Opera (or other browsers) or Play Store so if you don't click any Play Store links it's obvious one of that attempts to lead you to an app and you just press back.

  • Root your phones, people.
    No G-apps, no playstore.
    Most respectable app producers have their own website if you fancy an app.

  • I like to have redirect to Play Store when i click a link of Play store, but i don't like if it auto open Play Store from an ad
