Pop-up Blocking in Mozilla and Netscape

Wednesday August 14th, 2002

CNET has an article about pop-up blocking in Mozilla and Netscape 7.0. According to the report, the 'Open unrequested windows' checkbox won't be included in Netscape's next release. The piece, which includes quotes from James "Kovu" Russell, says that the option was removed because AOL relies on pop-up advertisements for revenue. However, Netscape 7.0 users can easily restore the feature.

"Or am I just getting a little too tied up in this?"

That, of course, was a rhetorical question. The answer is yes. And as I've made changes to MozillaZine articles without tagging them as updates, I'm also a hypocrite.
