Pop-ups?

Pop-up ads or pop-ups are a form of online advertising on the World Wide Web intended to attract web traffic or capture email addresses. Pop-ups are generally new web browser windows to display advertisements. The pop-up window containing an advertisement where it is usually generated by JavaScript, but can be generated by other means as well.Most pop-ups you see are paid advertisements.  It’s advertising that allows us to visit many of our favorite websites without having to pay any money.  Still, some people don’t like pop-up ads.  That’s one reason that pop-up blockers were invented.  A pop-up blocker refers to any software or application that disables any pop-up, pop-over, or pop-under advertisement window that you would see while using a Web browser. Some pop-up blockers may try to close all pop-up windows, some may remove all advertising from a publisher's Website, and still others may help you choose which pop-up windows you want to be closed with block list feature.
