that I may come across in a Google search. Recently, they've installed a popup feature that forces you to read an ad or wait for 15 seconds before the popup goes away. Even YouTube ads are shorter, or can be made to go away with their "Skip Ad" option. There seems to be no such option with the Fine Woodworking popups.

It did nothing on my computer when I clicked on the (X) symbol. I had to leave the webpage to avoid further waiting.
