Pop-ups ads are used extensively in advertising on the Web, though advertising is not the only application for pop-up windows.
Pop up windows come in many different shapes and sizes, typically in a scaled-down browser window with only the Close, Minimize and Maximize commands.
Most Web surfers hate pop-up ads. Marketers often overlook the ill-will generated by pop-ups because it is easier to click the "close" button than send an email to complain.
