Multimap and pop ups

I am getting fed up with Multimap as a site. It used to be excellent, but they have tarnished themselves in my opinion by introducing unsolicited windows that appear in the background when you search for an address.

Why? It was pretty good before, but I am losing the will to continue visiting the site. As far as I’m concerned this is a pretty poor strategy from Multimap. Maybe others don’t feel so cheesed off by it, but for me it’s enough to make me turn to the AA web site instead.
