I use firefox... its faster (takes a little to get used to for some), and I have no problems with pop ups. It alerts you when a window was coming up, stops it and then you have the option of going in and deciding to "unlock" to allow that particular window to come up.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
I am not a fast writer.
I am not a slow writer.
I am a half-fast writer.
