A lot sites brought this on themselves. Its beyond annoying clicking an image, and the page auto re loads itself so you have to view the page. No, I just want to see the dang picture!

Combine that with content heavy sites cramming up behind the picture.

I think ad people are also happy about this. While the page was loading, you still weren't looking at the ads.

I hate those sites, especially the wallpaper pages.

I agree. This also removes the unhealthy practices - those who fish trafic with those methods. Im happy - but then again as a site owner i was damaged too. Not as much as the others since it wasnt my main door, but i did feel a 20-30 drop! so not sure how to really feel about it :D

It's great for finding album covers without having to delve too deep into a site.
