I have a need to use a lot of pop ups to provide greater detail into items users are interested in.

The problem is the percentage of time that a browser will block these pop ups.

I would need to find a way to do one or both of two things:

1.) Find a way to show pop ups like with lightbox that will not be blocked by browsers without greatly hindering page load time

2.) Provide a JavaScript / JQuery alert that can detect when a pop up has been blocked by a browser and notify a user through an alert along with a custom message written by me

Anyone familiar with some JavaScript coding that will do this or if lightbox is a practical solution without hindering page load time. There is likely to be anywhere from 10-30 different pop ups on a given page.
