Do popups suck? Are they the worst thing about the internet? Are popups enough to turn you off of a website and never return?
In my experience, SOME popups suck but it’s not a universal truth.
Popups get a bad rep mostly because in the past, they were plastered all over the place without much consideration for user experience. A popup delivered with a bad message at the wrong time is super annoying, I agree, but luckily web design has come a long way in recent years and popups are no longer the major turn off that they once were. Popups don’t have to be mismanaged, they don’t have to manipulate website visitors, and they sure as heck don’t have to look like a branding fail.
