Even the most respectable businesses are not above planting those maddening pop-up ads that make visiting their Web sites a furious exercise in closing unwanted windows. That is why pop-up blockers, or killers, as they are affectionately known — a type of software that stops ads before they pop up — are such a hot item. A program that automatically blocks pop-up ads intelligently -ó meaning it can distinguish the “good” pop-ups from the “bad” — is worth its weight in gold.
My spin: Listen, advertisers use pop-ups why? BECAUSE THEY WORK (compared to other online adv). However they can be a pain to users and frankely I don’t even use them on smallbiztechnology.com any more!
