</head>
 
<body>

    <button onclick = "myGeeks()">
        Click here!
    </button>
     
    <p id = "cont"></p>

    <script>
        window.addEventListener("storage", myGeeks1);
         
        function myGeeks1(event) {
            document.getElementById("cont").innerHTML
                    = "A Computer Science Portal";
        }
         
        function myGeeks() {
            var x = window.open("", "win",
