When I build web apps. I purposely discourage business users from injecting popups into pages and risk the loss of repeat visits. Many of today's web pages have become absolutely irritating to the point that I stop accessing them.

One of the biggest news networks, CNN, is the most egregious offender. You are reading a link and then - pop, a large popup right in the middle of the page. Use some nasty words, click the close button, and watch it fade away.

CNN also has a large collection of links to other sites that look appealing/interesting. But dare one venture to some of those sites and you may find yourself in 'clicking hell'. Most of these linked sites have tons of flashing ads, moving buttons so you will accidentally click an ad instead. One site actually crashed my desktop via Edge.

What are these people thinking? I keep seeing visions of Snidely Whiplash in my head. The lure of the initial ad to access the site many times is not included in the page after page of TMI, thus, going way beyond the initial link verbiage.

It's really a shame, CNN has a basic good page format. But their greed to attract someone somewhere is over the top.

Anyone know of a good news site without the traps? Mad | :mad:
