The way dialogs act relative to a window is an OS feature, not specific to any app. Chrome and Firefox can't change how the OS works...

On the last versions they made a work-around to this that it only blocks the tab responsible for the alert :)

Modal Windows made sense for modal applications. However tab based applications are different as each one has a separate context. Therefore, modality should be restricted to the tab that opened in the modal window.

There is no impediment that prevents a browser to restrict modality. Developers should think outside the box to make applications better for the users.
