Tabs randomly opening and closing again.

When browsing less than safe websites using Google Chrome, tabs tend to randomly open and close again less than a second later.

Sometimes, when my connection is a bit slower, I can get a glimpse at the link. It goes to some link, quickly redirects to something different and closes again.
It happens occasionally when I click, it doesn't matter if I click a link or just a blank space.
I have already run several anti virus scams, malware tests etc., but none of them are finding anything. I haven't noticed anything different about my computer when looking at performance, the amount of ads, boot time etc.
I don't really have an issue, at least not as far as I know, but I'm just curious.

Also, I'm using it on a "burner" PC. I don't login to anything important on it, so there's no reason to worry if I have a key logger,unless it somehow spread over my WiFi, of course.

Really not much reason to read much further....

If truly determined to surf dangerous websites known infect 9 out of 10 people, and, you like that....

Make a VM, and, nuke it/snapshot back to original each time, or, surf from within a Linux Mint VM on VirtualBox....
