Bookmarklet: prevent clicks, form submissions, reloads and exits

I often mockup page changes using Chrome’s dev tools.
I’ll get a page just right, then later accidentally click a link or close the page and lose my changes.

page protect bookmarklet

This bookmarklet, once clicked will protect you from premature page exits.
It disables link clicks, form submissions, page reloads and exits.

Add it by going to this jsFiddle page, and dragging the green link to your bookmarks bar:

Here’s the JavaScript:

javascript:window.onclick=function(){return false;},
window.onsubmit=function(){return false;},
window.onbeforeunload=function(){return 'Page Protection is enabled';};
