    Good test, the only ones that FreeSurfer can't deal with are the JAVA ones that float over the page. I'd like to find something that could kill them and still allow JAVA capability for legitimate uses.

    I've never seen a test like that. John, I agree with you, it is a good test. Strangely, it did not appear as if the site was trying to sell one particular product. Cool.

    I didnt get a single popup with Mozilla Firebird. Maybe its cuz I dont have Java installed. How do i test if I have it or not?

    I only got a popup on two tests, sticky and mouseover. The only popup blocker I'm using is what's built into Opera. I do have Java enabled.

    Firebird has a built in popup blocker. You know when its blocked a popup when you see the little i in the bottom left fo the screen.

    Didn't see a single one!

    I use "Popup Killer" (No longer available, and I guard backup copies of the setup .exe like gold!)
