Andy Ihnatko of Chicago Sun-Times Still Prefers Mozilla

Tuesday February 11th, 2003

Prognathous is back, this time with a link to an article at the Chicago Sun-Times entitled Mozilla still champ when it comes to stopping popups. In this report, columnist Andy Ihnatko goes in search of third-party enhancements to make Internet Explorer competitive with Mozilla and, to a lesser extent, Opera, Chimera and Safari. While Ihnatko largely succeeds in his mission, he concludes that he still likes Mozilla better.

Gerv, I've tested this on several old and new profiles and am not seeing any blocking of _requested_ pop-ups. I've seen one other report besides yours (npm.general I think) and so we may have a bug but it doesn't seem to affect most people. Do you have any extensions installed? I know that at least Piro's Tabbed Browser Extension caused the requested popups to fail. He has a new version that works. I think I heard about at at least one other extension breaking popup controls as well but I can't remember which one. Does your problem show up on a new profile with no extensions installed? What OS?
