Default Window XP Service Pack 2: Pop up blocker for IE

Hello guys,

This is probably old news for you guys but I've just read the news and wanted to know what you guys think. I did a search on the forum but found nothing about it.

I've just read that one of the new features in the Window XP service pack 2 is a popup blocker for IE. This is very bad news. 75% of my visitors use IE6 and 20% use IE5. I think that most of these visitors don't like pop-ups both they don't bother to download a pop-up blocker. But if they get IE with a build in popup blocker, then they will surely use it!

Is this the end of pop-ups and pop-unders? I do believe so.

Yes, this has been discussed at length here before and I think most people agree that pops won't die immediately as a result of this new IE default feature. Ad networks are always finding creative ways around these things--it's a constant back and forth technology battle. Take a look at www.adoutput.com for one example of how even small publishers can now easily circumvent most pop blockers on the net today. Imagine that on a large ad network scale...

Also, as pops fade, there will always be rich-media layer ads, interstitials and other creative ways for marketers to reach their audience in similar fashion.

I'm planning to take the AdOutput code to detect pop blockers and serve other ads instead - in particular FC InVues and Interstitials. I suspect that if I let people know - turn off your pop blocker and you'll stop getting InVues - that many will allow pops instead. I personally have almost no fear that the revenue that I've been making from pops won't be replaced by something else.

Is he charging $50.00 for the script? Wasn't the script free?

The blocker detector is free. The blocker bypasser that works with 3rd party provider's isn't though. Sorry, capitalism in action .
