That mac os x dosen't get pop-ups. I get them sometimes on mine, and it bugs me!

I downloaded limewire, do you think it has anything to do with that?

i dont have no mac's
well it isnt necessarily osx that blocks popups (unless i am missing something major here) it is safari (or firefox and most other good browsers)

i get maybe about 3 popups (or pup unders) a day...not too bad for right now, and i am sure that they will figure out how to block those very soon (and then something new is just going to come along to annoy us)

Firefox fixed that with 1.0.1 I belive.

I thought Safari had too, Guess not.

Really?
I know I saw a few popunders with Firefox 1.0, but then I upgraded to 1.0.1 and never saw anything since. Weird. Maybe it's one of my extensions taking care of it then (AdBlock?). Or I'm just lucky. :p

I bet if you clean up your cookies, those pop unders will re-appear.

Maybe I'm just not visiting sites with those pop-ups/unders.
Anyone care to give me a URL and see if it'll happen to me?
