+1. Or get Firefox with adblock and/or NoScript. Who needs ads?

We dont control that. Call and complain to IB.
Or get a browser that blocks particular scripts.

I'm a Foxfire Browser fan. Pop-ups are supper rare. I do get audio at weather.com. Boy some sites do load allot of cookies though . (ah-ahem).

Explorer is a definite no-no. Everything is geared to target that.

You could always buy a Premium membership to get rid of the ads.

I wouldn't leave a site. Use use Chrome with ad blockand I firewall my home network to filter at the IP level before it ever hits my PC.

Although I do agree with his sentiment and how the internet has become littered with ads that are usless. It's not ever going to get better only worse. It's also IMHO a major major security hole in how we utilize technology. Ad's tend to attract sloppy code which in turn attracts the underbelly of the internet to show their face and cause probs.

He'll be back.

Bonjour is also French for "Hello" - it's a tourism ad lol
