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.

Anyone noticed lately that some sites somehow beat Mozilla's popup blocking?
First nytimes did it, then that was fixed. But lately I have been surprised by some popup windows. I dont remember specific URLs, but I have come across them in the last couple months.
Has anyone else noticed this, and is it being worked on?
