Popup blockers

YOU WANT some confirmation on the information you have - urgent. Period. There is a deadline to meet. You logged on to the Net but the downloading speed is pretty slow.

The site you wanted to go to is taking ages to open.

Many people hate it when a new window pops up as soon as they enter a site! There are some sites, which pop up even three windows.

Even worse is the site, which does not only pop up a window upon entering the site — it pops up a window (or more) on every page! These popup windows are annoying and eat up your bandwidth.
