What is the most annoying popup? I think it's the one that goes "uh-oh!" and opens ur CD drive. Or the alienware one that says "SHALL WE PLAY A GAME?" really loud.

It's not really a pop-up, but it's the ones that fly across your screen and block off wherever you're trying to go. Like the one with the balloons... I dunno what it said.

One that went full screen so i cant close it, then spawned 20 other popups before i could read it, after a minute of fighting the still-spawning popups i got them all, except the main full screen one, which said in big letters, TIRED OF DEALING WITH POPUPS? THEN GET THE (WHATEVER THE NAME WAS) POPUP BLOCKER!!! YAAY!

I always though advertising a popup blocker with a popup was shitty, especially now there are about a hundred different popup blockers avaliable.

Sounds like fun to me. I have about 5 pop up blockers, and Mozilla Firebird, so no popups for me.

I hate both of them too, but I also hate the grey ones that pop up EVERYWHERE that require you to click “No” before it goes away. Usually when I go to a new web page I have my cursor near the toolbar because I always right-click the popup’s toolbar and click “close” for it to disappear, but you need to click “No” for those grey ones.

Dude I can never understand your posts.....

I think the ones where they say "do you want to set your homepage to _____.com???" and you don't notice them and accidetaly press enter or click yes. Then you have to change your home page.

except the install ones, that when you click no have a popup saying "you have to click YES next time" and you click ok. the install one comes up again, and you click no again, and so on and so forth till you press alt+F4.

Google Toolbar is pretty effective in blocking pop-ups. I get 1 a week, if that.

Anyway, the most annoying pop-ups are ones where they say "somebody is hacking your computer!!!!!!!!!!111!!1!" or someting like that. The "you are the 10 millionth viewer of this site!" ads are funny when you can see a hit counter with maybe 200 hits on it in the background. :p
This flash movie is pretty funny, and sums up what all of the pop-ups usually offer. :p
