i noticed on mozilla.org that the 0.94 branch has been officially released. nice stuff, including the ability to disable pop-up/pop-under ads:

“I have just checked in a little hack that disables the window.open call during onLoad and onUnload events, top-level scripts, and timeouts. This should block 99% of pop-up or pop-under ads out there on the Web while
still allowing a page to open a window in response to a mouse click. It’ll be in today’s trunk builds and on the 0.9.4 branch. To turn on this feature, add this line to your prefs.js file (be sure to exit Mozilla before editing prefs.js or your changes will be overwritten):

user_pref(“dom.disable_open_during_load”, true);”

it’s amazing how much more pleasant it makes your browsing experiences. it looks like slashdot is discussing [sic] the merits of the release.
