Something that struck me though is that none of the aggregators he looked at supported pop-up blocking.
This was something I had planned from day one (admittedly with no real clue how to do it ;-). However it looks very much like I won’t have to bother now.

Here’s the big step forward Phil was looking for, without anyone having to do anything.
