NarrowBand (as in not dsl or cable) rules… if you know how to use it well
the power is in the escape key (stop) and in alt+f4. Occasionally I use alt, space, c to close a window if I feel that moving my right hand to f4 is too difficult.
Honestly I close windows before they finnish loading. I have trained my eyes to ignore (most) flashing banners as well.
Yes, the windows that change focus really bug me, especially when I am typing in a url in another window (I usually don’t watch pages load).
useful keyboard shortucts (windows, some apply to kde, and gnome):
alt+f4 - close window
alt space c - close window // doesn’t work in kde, or gnome
control + w - close window // I don’t know where all works. I don’t use
alt tab - change active window (pressed 1 time switches to last window, 2 times to window before last, 3rd time … etc)
alt + d - select address bar // only windows IE
umm, maybe I should dl the latest version of mozilla and turn on the option to only allow user-initated (or similar) pop-ups.
full screen flash advertisement are bad …
sound in web pages is bad (for any near-corporate site)
flash advertisements are bad
windows only plugins are bad
IIS is bad
well, popups no longer get on my nervs because I know which sites I go to will give me them (yahoo owned), and I don’t go to sites other sites if they get on my nerves enough.
most notably (not only for pop-ups) in my sites-I-don’t-go-to is gamespot.com
oh, and don’t install spyware, or adware, please. I would die if something decided to launch a pop-up every time I went to google
do they bug me? They used to, I have learned.
Do they have an effect on me? No, thinkgeek doesn’t do pop-ups
