I'm working on a site that has some (good) popups, and we were curious if
they would be blocked by different types of popup blocking software.
The best/only resource I could find was
This lists how different popular blockers "score," and has different tests
that you can run to see if your popups will be stymied by common software.
As with all things like this, the best method is to download the software
and try for yourself. Or, if anyone wants to do a more thorough comparison
