But those aren't popups, just windows which open in a new window (those
aren't blocked by the popup blocking anyway). I definitely think those
are horribly annoying... Usually when a window opens a new Epiphany
window, I close it again and then click the link with the middle mouse
button which is obviously not friendly. 
I think it would make more sense to open those windows in new tabs when
this is the default setting. It should jump automatically to this new
tab though (if it was opened with a single click, because then the user
will certainly go there directly).
Besides of that, I find those windows a bit rude anyway. I'm not sure if
you can do this (probably not) but if it would be possible, I would love
to see in the statusbar if a link will open a new window/tab.
Another problem related to those windows is, that new windows will
always appear at the small default size, not the size of your last
Epiphany window. At least in 0.7. That makes it twice as irritating. :)
