Annoying Pop-Up Ads Are Back, With a Vengeance
Well, in case you haven't noticed, pop-ups are coming back worse than before, and one of the companies responsible is Adimpact. The business makes software specially designed to feed pop-ups to Web sites using technology that modern pop-up blocking techniques can't stop. The company primarily uses DHTML, or dynamic HTML, the same technique used to create mouse-over animations and drop down menus on other Web sites.
We hope someone will figure out a way to stop the Adimpact madness before it spreads to any more sites (current high-profile accounts include IMDB) and returns us to the online hell that was the '90s. [From: Den of Geek via Slashdot]
