    Some of these banners now, if you simply pass over them with your cursor, will open up a new window without clicking.

    It's not all banners but that Airplane one is definitely one of them.

    I've seen this, but only on my iPhone. There have been times when I put the phone down and just waited and, sure enough, the redirect kicked in and sent me to either the app store or another site.

    It hasn't happened in a few days though, so I'm hoping it's done.
