[Suggestion] WEB: "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page" prompt.

Title says it all. I suppose I'm easily distracted, especially when I get a new notification on Duolingo. I'm quick to click on it and loose the progress I'd made in the lesson I was working on.

It's only happened a couple of times, but I wonder if a prompt confirming that you want to navigate away from the current page could be implemented. Exactly like how it works on web based email.

Now I'd better get back to practising, lunch hour is almost over!

Or perhaps I could just give my Duolingo lessons my full and undivided attention... ;-)

I agree. There have been a few times where I've been reading through the discussion on a particular translation and clicked a link, e.g. to a person's profile, only to realise I've lost all progress on that lesson.

Really happy to see this idea incorporated into the new web design. Keep up the good work!
