We recently used a popup on a web-based subscription newswire service for
derivatives traders. These people need large amounts of info on their
screens all the time, so screen real estate is crucial. When they no longer
wish to view the site in a larger browser, these users can opt to open a
mini pop-up that refreshes in the corner of their screen, bringing up the
latest headlines. When they see a headline that interests them, they click
on it and the larger browser either opens up or comes to the fore, depending
on whether it was already open.

Testing with real users has returned a positive response.
