    Oh, you think there's actually a way to track who uses and who doesn't use popup blockers? There's too many different blockers to track to be able to say. Op, moz and saf have popup blockers. Google bar, Yahoo! bar etc. have them. Antiviri, soft firewalls, privacy proxies, antispyware and antiadware have them. WinXP SP2 has one. You can even find them in such strange places as nVidia's graphics drivers. There's simply no way to tell you how many have them, and even less of a chance of telling how many have them activated. (I doubt especially many use nVidia's popup blocker, because they don't know it's in there and it's not enabled by default. But it's probably the most widely distributed one, considering how large portion of the graphics card market they have.)

    Yeah it's definitely not possible (I didn't know about the nVidia one, interesting). I just use FF. But I do have several, just not enabled...including SP2, that is however enabled.
