I know C++, PHP and a few more, but I do not have the slightest clue, how to make a browser extension and the tutorials I find on the web are like chinese to me, so let me ask here, if anyone can help me out.
Task: I want to auto-close advertising popups and popunders without blocking them completely.
The biggest problem is, most websites detect ad blockers and ask you to disable them before they show their site.
Also some popunders have to redirect back to the site they came from, or else it won't execute a click on the site.
Therefore popups and popunders have to be allowed to open and then get closed as if the user had clicked the close button on the tab.
A chrome extension that almost does what I want would be "Ad Close Gold", but that one has limitations I cannot live with.
For one, it doesn't have an option to delay an auto close, meaning when it closes popunders, it also closes the site that came from.
For two it has a rather small max amount of entries, due to storage limitations in Chrome.
So the question would be, is there an open source extension one could use and modify and if not, how to make such an extension from scratch?
