That is probably not the case. It's eminently possible to write pages
that take over many of the baseline functions of the browser (bring up
Google Maps and right-click on the map--nothing happens). And as I
mentioned, a link that references a javascript: URL will not be
saveable via a context menu item. You can find examples of links
bearing these URLs in Google maps as well, in the baloons that tag
search results in the maps. When you right-click one of those, the
context menu shows only "Bookmark This Link.." "Copy Link Location"
and "Properties".

As above, not true.
