Default to allow javascripts to open windows

Hi All Epub3 Devs,

What are your thoughts on allowing javascripts to open windows (assuming you have enabled javascript in your epub3 in Sigil).

Right now we have disabled that feature but there is no user way to override it.

The use case I am thinking about is that some epub3's use pop-up windows to generate pop-up footnotes and asides.

We could instead allow it and support it in Sigil. Any user can still completely disable javascripts by using Sigil's Preferences. So it should not be a security issue.

Thoughts?

Since you mention javascript can still be disabled, I would be in favor of allowing this feature.

Seems the sensible thing to do from a security standpoint. There's very little point in offering multiple levels of user-configurable javascript security in my opinion. They either turn full javascript support on or leave it off (the default).
