We finally won the war of the popup ads through ad blockers and persistence. But there is now a new enemy in the web browser popup war: – ‘XXX wants to know your location’ – ‘XXX wants to send you notifications’ – ‘We use cookies, do you accept? (thanks EU 🙁 ) – ‘Subscribe to our newsletter. Enter your email address.’ – ‘Log in to see more content’ – ‘Click here to save 10% on your order’ – ‘You qualify for a free credit card (while logged into credit card company site to pay my bill)’ Yes, these are no longer annoying ‘Punch the monkey’ type popups, but instead rather obnoxious fill-the-screen pop-overs that you need to close on every visit to the web site. Give me the old days of banner ads.
