Negative.

Depends on what your target market is - webmasters; probably most of them, students; probably very few...

To be honest, more and more service providers (AOL et all) are offering to automatically stop pop-ups at the connection level - it is a dying medium. Perhaps you could consider other types of advertising/displaying content.

Does a pop-up blocker block links with target="_blank"?

Some of the freebie ones do, but most do not.

Opera users have the option of "Only show requested popups" at the browser level. Basically, if I didn't click a javascript or link to cause the popup to happen, it never happened.
Just FYI.

Mozilla has this feature too. I use it on my laptop, since it seems to get slowed down dramatically by popups, particularly those ones that spawn other popups when you try and close them ;)

It is unfortunate that ads ahave really killed the ability to use pop up windows for functionality, like calendar controls.

While popup stopper is ON, in some cases i just manage to get some javascript Err and then nothing happens. I could not understand why this happens!
