Pop-up Blocking in Mozilla and Netscape

Wednesday August 14th, 2002

CNET News.com 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.

This might work as well for re-enabling the pop-up blocking feature in NS7:

I've been using it in Mozilla for a long time now and it has a lot of great non-pop-up related uses as well.
