Description maxnitribitt 2016-12-30 13:34:03 UTC
Behaviour of html4J presenters is inconsistent on different platforms. With Browser Presenter we can open a new Window from html like this:

function openSecondaryWindow() {
    return win2 ='index_1.html', 'secondary', 'width=300,height=150');
<button onclick="openSecondaryWindow();">Open</button>

With JavaFX WebView Presenter the index_1.html will be opened in the same window replacing the existing content.

Sorry, it seems that my sources are outdated so there's some rubbish in the patch.
