Oh, yeah.  What was that place Fr. Tom tried to use? That was ridiculous.
Tripod is another one that has my finger hovering over the Esc key as
soon as I see that domain name.   I think Angelfire is another.

The worst is when you finally dig down to the page you wanted
and it's 404.

And then they put MORE ADS on the 404 Page!

Kill all the marketers...

Just turn off your 'javascript' and neither geocites nor tripod
ads can pop up. Yes, it's a PITA to do for the few sites you visit,
but _someone_ has to pay for the site hosting costs.

The new mozilla browser has the ability to disable 'autoopen'
so you can avoid pop-ups/pop-unders from most sites. A really good
reason to dump Incontinent Exploder.

And Netscape 7 is based on Mozilla code.

Popup Stopper and Popup Stopper Pro do wonders with Exploder. It's
amazing just how much more stable it becomes with it. Visiting some
of those sites would almost always result in a crash (exploder) followed
shortly by the rest of the system.

Even with popup stopper it's nowhere near as stable as mozilla but you can
leave javascript enabled.

FWIW,
So is Phoenix, available from mozilla homepage.  Leaner, with more speed so it is useable with old computers.

Fast is also my favo Opera http://www.opera.com
