UPDATE! also has an report about Netscape's pop-up blocking abilities. There's a similar article at

The article is all about pop-ups. It's amazing how much we hear about pop-ups these days. It's equally amazing how few people know about the easiest way to zap them. A Ctrl+w will close the current window in focus, including a pop-up. This works at least on Windows and in KDE. There is never a need to race after a pop-up with your mouse or to drag an oversized window to find the "close" button, no matter which browser you're using. (Of course it's still cool that Mozilla can just just block them altogether.)
