New Netscape Ditches Pop Ups

from the does-it-matter? dept

It seems that AOL has decided that the latest version of Netscape will keep one of Mozilla’s more popular features: blocking pop-up ads. Since AOL is such a big user of pop-up ads (even if they are phasing them out), this is a little surprising. Of course, I doubt it will matter much. The people out there who will know about this probably already use Mozilla or some other browser with a pop-up blocker. I doubt many people will switch to Netscape just for the pop-up blocker.
