Completely agree Ajay. One site owner had 6 offer pages before you got to the home screen. Terrible. Popups before surf, during surf, I'm waiting for there to be OTOs before you can log off.

I wonder what percent of surfers use popup blockers and never even see most popups.

I use one and would guess that at least 90% do. If not, they should be. But it doesn't stop the exit popups.

Is there any way to stop those exit popups?

Exit popups that force you back to the site should also be banned I think.

While I agree that pop ups have a place when used correctly. I would beware of popups as a rule. I have noted that a few of them contain phishing or malware scripts in them. I haven't seen many in a while, but it is always good to keep your security software up to date. When I run into one nowadays, my security programs block them.

Nope they don't bother me at all, it's part of doing business with them. If a person don't like it they have a choice. Start their own business or just don't use the sites.

 

BTW, I did start my own business! :)

also those asking popups that generate those dialogs may be disgusting, some times that popup make more than 1 answer, I really hate that, they ask if you want to leave, and after that another popup asking if you are sure.. disgusting

I surf a lot on Safari with my Ipad, most exit pop ups there cause the frame to break, So I say ban them

I treat pop-ups as inevitable evil. In each field of activity there are problematic places. The miners, for example, do not have everything smooth with security.  :)
I think that this is an inconvenience that can be tolerated. Another question - the effectiveness of pop-ups. They irritate users. I think advertisers themselves should refuse to use them.
