Steps to reproduce
- Create a page with: <a href=’http://www.microsoft.com’ target=’_blank’>Open Microsoft</a>
- Open the page in IE 11
- Click the link
- Open the console in the Microsoft window that has been opened
- Type: window.opener
=> you will get undefined
Try this on other browsers or versions of IE - this will not happen.
When opening a new window from another, window.opener in the new window will be a handle to the opening window.
