Adding those two entries to allow popups is not about whether a web
application *should* use popups. It is about making a browser
configuration that works in the most friendly way for the user.
dhcp.msu.edu and vpn.msu.edu both trigger popups that disappear by
themselves, but when blocked generate warning messages in the browser.
Wireless login (at least on the old MSUnet AP's that we have at KBS)
triggers a popup that provides a logout button, which can be useful when
you are dealing with old AP's. There are other pages at MSU that have
popups, but I don't remember all of them. I have not noticed popups in
EBS, just new browser windows.
