How To Turn Off Google Chrome's Pop-Up Blocker

I just discovered this gem. I didn't know about this one, maybe you guys did.
Credit to Mohammed Mansour for this hint for those of you using Google's Chrome browser and who have no idea how to turn off the pop-up blocker. (Officially you can't).
Quote:
The shortcut on your desktop that is used to start the Google Browser (Chrome) will point at 'chrome.exe' on your hard disk.You need to edit the shortcut to add the command line parameters (right click on the shortcut and left click on properties, the 'Shortcut tab' has a field called 'target' that's what you need to amend so the last part reads -disable-popup-blocking) depending on your set up it may look like this
"C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application ata\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -disable-popup-blocking

To disable pop ups click on the wrench on the top right hand corner. Click on Settings then click on advanced settings. In the privacy section click on content settings, then under pop ups click on the option "do not allow any site to show pop ups". Remember that you can always go back and change to allow all sites to show pop ups if a webpage requires the pop up setting off to allow content. Your welcome in advance =)
