Turn Popups Off

There are a lot of sites around that use popups for ads – er, besides porn sites, that is. A simple feature I want in my next browser: a checkbox that disables the JavaScript commands to open a new window. I don’t want to turn off JS completely, because it can be useful… that, and it’s a huge pain to go drill down three or four menus to hit a checkbox every time a popup comes into view.

I can’t imagine that it’s hard to implement. Instead, we get skins and enhanced print preview functions. Wow! -pm
