Windows XP SP2's pop-up blocker works exactly like it advertises. I've been testing the browser for the past few days (rather than using Firefox like I normally do), and I haven't had one pop-up ad yet. If enough people bother to install SP2, I happen to wonder if it will kill pop-up advertising? I certainly hope so, but then it makes me wonder what kind of intrusive advertising method they will go to next.
