    Popup blocker!

    1. What is approximately the percentage of all people who using popup blocker software on their computer?

    2. This software will block all popups, popunders, Active X, exit popups, etc.?

    2. There is also difference between browsers (IE, Mozilla, Opera, etc.) regarding showing popups?

    Firefox has an adblocker built in. So I dont see any popups.

    When I was on IE, the google toolbar had a popup blocker.

    About 3/4 of my customers have and adblocker.

    XP SP2 has a built in adblocker.

    So, yeah, popups are dying out.

    I have Spybot & Spy Blaster block the active-x. I only use Firebird or Mozilla 1.7 while browsing. Use I.E. (SP2 patched) when needed. In fact, I do not even run those types of ads on my sites. I detest spyware and active-x, therefore I will NOT condone it on sites that I control.
