There is, but I just found it too irritating suddenly realizing a given game would need a popup.

Pluss Hal has a great way of checking if something is a bad popup or not anyway by just hitting the read status bar key, sinse if it doesn't come up with something sensable it's an add and you can just hit alt F4.


Beware the Grue!

Hi Dark,
I have to agree with you there about separate tabs versus windows, but certainly a pop up blocker would be useful I think, and if you need to play games where pop ups are needed there should always be an option to disable and reenable the blocker when necessary.
Regards,
Damien.

I must confess I found six a good deal less stable than 7 or 8, which is why I've upgraded to 8 on my desktop and seven on my laptop.

however, I equally find the pop up blocker irritating sinse it tends to get in the way of playing games like Sryth or warriors 2 where pop ups are needed, not to mention pop up buying forms on some websites.

I also much prefer having multiple windows to multiple tabs, ---- something I do regularly when writing news or database updates for audiogames.net where I need the page I'm editing open in one window, and a second to bring up information I need such as game links to copy etc.

i must confess while I see the point of tab brousing for a sited user who can view more than one set of information on screen at once, for me I just find it irritating sinse it's easier to go betwene different open windows which are separate than different tabs.

All personal preference though of course.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi Damien,
Ah, but I seam to recall there was a massive memory leak in Internet
Explorer 6 that was resolved in Internet Explorer 7 and above. So that
right there is a good reason to upgrade Internet Explorer if nothing
else.
Another feature you guys are missing is the Internet Explorer pop up
blocker which keeps several pop ups from coming up on most of the
websites you go to, multitabbed browsing that allows you to have
multiple web pages open at the same time, etc. there are some really
nice features of Internet Explorer 8 you are not taking advantage of
by choosing to stick with Internet Explorer 6. Not to say the least
bug fixes etc.

Cheers!

Hi Jim,
I am more or less the same. I am running Jaws 7, Internet Explorer 6, Visual Studio 6, Skype 2.5, Windows Messenger (the default version that comes with
XP), etc. About the only thing I update often are my audio software and
games. Grin.
Regards,
Damien.
