Again, not strictly pop-ups, but I was just coming here to start a new thread on the subject (well a related subject). I hope itís OK to add this to this thread.
I have a client who insists on external links on part of their site opening up into a new window. The decision has been made and so the target=ď_blankĒ method has been used.
Iíve been wondering how best to make this as user friendly as possible. Labelling the fact that the link will open into a new browser window is one option. One other option might be to give the user a choice as to whether to have the link open in a new window, or function as a normal link. But Iíd be interested in hearing any other approaches.
