cousing, uncle, wife...) and so on that netscape allready supports?

Do they really? I think they are not neaded as they consume precious 
screen space (could this be optional).


As popup windows are floting objects (you can move them around), they 
would be ideal places for things like site-spesific navigation buttons 
(talking about navigation aids doesn't sound nice).  I know there is 
allready the <BANNER> tag (element) for this purpose, but it isn't
