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.

It is fairly easy to beat Mozilla's blocking. Mozilla blocks pop-up calls coming from body's onLoad event. To beat it all you have to do is respond to the windows MouseMove event and pop-up a new window. <> does it pretty effectively.
