I hate pop-up ads!

I hate advertising on the internet, but regard it as something of a necessary evil. If a site that would otherwise cost money to access can be made free by having ads on it, then that's something I can live with. But only if they're banner ads.

Lately, quite a few sites have started using pop-up ads which spawn a new browser window. The more annoying of them not only pop up new ads, but take over your desktop, crash your browser and eventually your window manager. Argh!
