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.
