    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The nonstandard ` contextmenu ` event is not widely supported.
    Browsers that do support it may be configured to prevent scripts from
    accessing that event.

    Example:

    <body oncontextmenu="return false">

    Disables the context menu where supported. Note that this will not
    prevent users from viewing your source code or copying images. To
    discourage copying, provide a copyright notice.

    It's not always the right button. In some cases, it isn't even a
    separate button. Furthermore, the context action can be invoked by
    some keyboards.
