just a personal thought, sometimes when these extra windows get opened on
my I lose track of how many etc that were actually turned on, and I close
too many windows and close all the windows, which means I have to restart
my browser and find my way back to where I was before all this started,
and for the commercial sites I will often just say "heck with it" and
never go back to that site...
