Dodging pop-ups with Mozilla - Tech News - CNET.com "Mozilla 1.0, the open-source technology whose coding is the basis for America Online’s latest Netscape browser, is garnering favor for a new feature that helps block irksome pop-up advertisements. But don’t expect to see the tool in the coming full release of Netscape 7.0." Very tempted to install Mozilla for this feature; pop-ups are second only to spam email in my list of the loathsome. I hope a version of IE with this option will appear soon, but of course AOL TW/Netscape likely won't include the feature anytime soon, since they are suppliers of zillions of pop-up ads as well as browsers.
