IE Popup Blocker Can Be Bypassed

On December 10 it was revealed that getting around the pop-up window blocker in Internet Explorer is relatively easy to do. The tactic requires the use of scripts so the obvious workaround to prevent unwanted pop-ups is to disable scripting in the browser. The revelation probably means that another Internet Explorer patch is on the way.

I'm curious how many of you work in organizations that plan use (or switch to) Firefox, and how many users in your organization does that use represent?
