    Brian Shuster, a long time figure in the internet pornography world, has recently received the patent for an advertisement format. Shuster's patent - The Traffic Management Utility - claims that pop-up ads account for 20 percent of the revenue of the two most profitable internet segments, online casions and adult entertainment. He has set up Ideaflood Inc., an intellectual property holding firm, to license revenue from sites that use pop-ups and other advertising technology.

    Other Shuster patents incluse similar technology to take control of a user's computer and send them to unexpected Web sites. One, called 'Method, apparatus and system for directing access', describes the use of hidden frames to inject Java script onto an user's computer that can be later used to send the browser to another Web site. This technology changes the system's registry, sending the user continuously to a specific site - a porn site - in Shuster's case. For example, typing in www.hotmail.com instead of http://www.hotmail.com will deliver a pop-up porn window, and then send the browser to Hotmail.

    Online advertising software vendor, Unicast, is coming up with a 15 second, 300 K online advertisement that fills the entire PC screen. This ad opens when a user clicks a link to go to another page in the same Web site.

    Great, just what we need ads taking the control of the computer. I don't understand why let people use that kind of tech :confused:

    Use an edited HOSTS.cfg file thats what I do if a pop up comes on now I grab its details and stick it in my hosts file to ban it from coming up, I have about 1500 pop ups banned and I only get about 2 or 3 pop ups in a week so I just keep banning them.

    =P im sure thats effective as well.. but i'd rather have them not pop up at all (letting the browser stop them before they pop)..

    you really should try other browsers.. you just might like them more.

    Opera has a free distribution and it's only 3.1MB if u already have Java installed. i love the feature mouse gestures.. i never have to worry about clicking on "Forward, Back, Home, [X] etc..]"

    I will be using a different browser from about Saturday onwards as im doing a fresh install of Win98. So I will choose not to install it as its a system HOG and I will choose a new one.
