    onunload not working as expected in IE10

    I am facing a strange problem in my environment, let me explain it. I have a HTML page as shown below -

    <!DOCTYPE html>
          <script type="text/javascript>
             window.onunload=function(){alert("unloading page");}
          <a href="http://localhost:8080/ABC">Localhost</a>
    When I am opening this page in IE10 and clicking on Localhost link, I can't see an alert "unloading page". However, in IE7, it's working fine. However if I use " " instead, it's working in both IE10 and IE7.

    Can anyone please resolve this issue? Thanks in advance.

    That's because IE10 is finally increasing it's security. Allowing execution of code at page leave is a huge cause of intrusive code.
