popup killer

every time i hear someone praising firefox, the popup killer is mentioned as one of the top reasons why they choose it. but in fact, how can someone have so strong feeling of the killing of a popup when it's already killed? before switching (almost entirely) to firefox, i've been addicted to opera for a very very long time (from version 3 or so, because of tab browsing, remember last session, show image or not, user's style or no style,...). maybe when i started using opera, popups are still not so hot and not much websites were using it. the result is: i never quite feel how annoying a popup can be. in fact, sometimes the killing even brings trouble to me. for example, the national library of china (http://www.nlc.gov.cn/) likes to use popups to tell you about the opening hours on public holidays, and since i never have a chance to read them, i've been blocked out of its gate once or twice. now that firefox will display a small banner telling you a popup is killed for the visiting page. this is very good. every time i visited the national library of china webpage now and see the banner, i will choose to read the popup. although, most of them are still garbages.
