    I generally hate "me too" postings, but I have to sound off on this one... Personally, I'm not a big fan of anything escaping the window via pop-ups, but my organization's web application uses them quite extensively. Chrome definitely needs a way to allow popups from certain websites. Yet another thing preventing my organization from deploying it, as much as we like the minimalist interface.

    I am not sure any fixing is necessary:

    PopupTest.com provides a simple and independent source for popup window testing. Whether you are developing a popup killer software or you are thinking about purchasing one, you can use our sample popups to test the effectiveness of the application.

    Look for yourself and test them all with Chrome: http://www.popuptest.com/

    You need to read more closely, sir. We're looking for a way to allow certain sites to create popups. Chrome's popup blocker is very effective. In this case, too effective, because you can't bypass it.

    Yeap, that's what I said: not sure any fixing is necessary... :-)

    Not all popups are bad...

    You don't want your popup blocker to block these, as this may interfere with your normal browsing.
    If you click on a link, then it is safe to assume that you actually want to open the page, popup or not.

    As far as I can see these are NOT blocked by Chrome...

    Your examples are absolutely fabulous... if the website is coded the same way. We can't always change the sites we use. The ability to specify sites that bypass the popup blocker is pretty standard to every other popup blocker I've used. It's a feature that's missing from Chrome.

    Angry No Google popups from GMail in Chrome

    I have a nice one in this regard. I opened a GMail and a mesage, and then I wanted to Create and Event from that message. Oops -- the pop-up blocker blocked Gmail or Google Calendar from opening its pop-up from GMail in Chrome. I mean -- OUCH!!! Is there a way to tell Chrome that Google Calendar pop-ups are O.K. -- really?!
