    Hi.

    I found an interesting Pop-up test site.

    25 tests in all.

    Start a test, read what it's supposed to do, then mark Yes/No passed the test and then 'Vote'. You can see the votes/percentages of success/failure of previous tests, then hit the back button and click Next Test

    Takes a while, but worth it.

    I only used Firefox's inbuilt popup blocker first and scored 20/25. [I delibrately left Java and Flash enabled during it, with the result I would have passed 1-2 more tests if disabled].

    "Some" of the tests require that a pop-up does happen, so read each one.

    Interestingly, I found tests 12/13 had a very high failure rate when I voted and saw the results.

    Choose your browser, then start the tests. :D
    Cheers, TAS :)

    Seemed to do pretty well using just IE6 SP2. Too bad you don't get an overall score at the end, but must keep track of results yourself -- I think I passed about 20 or 21 of the 25.
