Pop-ups Must Die! Internet Annoyances

Very few pop-ups/pop-unders make it past Camino, my web browser on OS X. The New York Times, and The Washington Post, are two sites who regularly get one pop-up through my filters.

And it’s pop-ups to subscribe to The Economist.

The irony is not lost on me: the only intrusive advertising I regularly see on the internet is for a service I’m all ready subscribed to, and one I plan on renewing for years to come, no less.
