Yesterday I was updating a test site (from 4.1.x to 4.2.x) using update-core.php and I accidentally clicked 'back' button during installation, which aborted the update process when it wasn't finished yet. This resulted in breaking the site completely (call to undefined function wp() ). It could have been easily prevented by simple beforeunload prompt.

Agreed. A javascript prompt would be suitable for this - just like when leaving a post/page you've started to modify.

Related is #32652 to avoid PHP ending the request in the event of the browser disconnection.
