I ran across an interesting link to a page that tests your browser for popups. It requires that you run Java. I was actually a little bummed that not a single popup went through on my browser. But then again, I run QuickJava (similar in principle to Noscript, but better for my needs) so it’s not that big of a surprise.
But it got me thinking. This really only tests conventional popups. It certainly doesn’t test for things like my Most Evil Popup Ever(TM). Frankly, I wouldn’t expect it to, because it isn’t a normal popup, but as technology evolves, I think less and less conventional means for delivery is going to take over. I feel like there are probably other forms of these types of popups that could work better, but I haven’t put any time into thinking through it, so it’s probably best to leave it at this. Anyway, cute link if you aren’t sure how vulnerable you are to popup annoyances.
