Pop Up Windows Not Recommended

With visual user interfaces that use a windowed interaction paradigm, Web user agents SHOULD restrict the opening of pop-up windows from web content, particularly those not initiated by user action. Creating excessive numbers of new popup windows is a technique that can be used to condition users to rapidly dismissing dialogs. This can be employed in interaction flooding attacks.

Web user agents which offer this restriction SHOULD offer a way to extend permission to individual trusted sites. Failing to do so encourages users who desire the functionality on certain sites to disable the feature universally.
