    there have been many reports on various tech oriented sites within the past month or so of new popup technology (specifically pop-unders) that can get pas popup blockers...not just in safari and not just on macs

    Installed and using, but not sure if I like it. The scrolling is a bit wonky. Not nearly as smooth as it was in Safari, even with Smooth Scrolling turned on. But it hasn't crashed, so that is a good thing.

    Are there any cool shortcuts/features? One thing I will miss is being able to used a key command to turn popups on/off for sites that need popups.

    Pop-unders most likely.

    safari normally sends those to the back anyways. i just let them come up, go to the back then when I Apple-Q, they all go away.

    Anyone that uses Packet News or TorrentSpy knows these. Hopefully Firefox will have them undercontrol in a forthcoming release. :x:
