i have to agree with jordan, ads that look more intergrated/related to the site seem more appealing to me, but jordan if u look at the bottem of the ads u should notice the google ads thingy

Opera shows the ads unless you use the Block Content feature (right-click anywhere on the page) but it could be because your hosts file is modified not to show advertisements...

Well, i've been using firefox since i started coming to CF, and lately a bit of opera as well. Never had a single issue... from experience i've found that IE goes nuts wherever you go after it gets infected with something. My friend's old PC would go nuts after just browsing to www.google.com, like 20 popups, And it wasn't google that was doing it.

lol i guess u don't like the US much

@mike: it was probably spyware that was causing the pop-ups, which he got from browsing the wrong sites with IE and didn't have good enough protection
