Doesn't it have a built-in blocker?
Yes indeed it does. However certain kinds of pop ups and pop unders seem to slip through its built in blocker. Yet IE with Google toolbar stops the ones that bug me the most. Not hardly enuff reason to use IE tho.
The Opera community knows this as I found the following online
Here are the pop-up window techniques from that site which Opera seems not to block:
Drop down Popup:
So that's 5 pop-up techniques that aren't blocked by Opera out of 13 showcased.
And to be honest, looking at some of the smarter techniques being used/abused by advertisers, I can appreciate that distiguishing between an unwanted page element and a wanted one is sometimes almost impossible.
Look around the Opera forums for more info: http://my.opera.com/forums/
However I haven't tried any third party Opera pop up blockers and usually recommend people use firefox if they can. I would like to know tho if anyone can find a good one. Perhaps Opera programmers will better address this issue, one can only hope.
