Breitbart's follies

I read a lot of articles and a well laid out article impresses me. I also enjoy a website that is user friendly and understandable.

Sadly an attempt by Breitbart to make their website articles more informative has returned negatives views from me. In their articles there are a few "topical words" that are underlined. When you touch them with your cursor a pop-up appears that blocks out part of the article. Iritating when you are reading the article.

What is bad is that there are viruses that turn certain words to links like this. Attempting to hawk the latest whatevers. The first time I hit one of these pop-ups there was a moment where I thought I had a virus.

There are so many things that a webmaster could do to improve their website. This is not one of them.
