I wasn`t sure which forum would be best for this, as it goes under the Pet Peeves heading. Except it`s worse than a pet peeve! With all the developers out there, could someone explain to me what might be the client reasoning behind trapping my browser so I can`t go back to my search results or do anything else?
Of course I can usually hit the "home" button and go back to my default
page (Google), or I can close down and restart the browser, but why?
Has there been any kind of statistical reporting as to if this trick
does anything whatsoever to benefit a Web site? I just usually set them
into my "never-again" list, and never visit the site again.
