Video content plays without my permission. If someone has their volume turned up (because the last video had poor audio quality), the sudden loud noise could cause injury. Many people have complained about this, but apparently pcworld does not care. It's all about revenue. WOT calls this type of advertisement as "Questionable" rather than "Negative". It needs to be put in a category all in it's own. This is like the web sites who used to open your cd bays when you went to their site. If a person has a bad speaker attached to their computer and leaves the house, this could cause a fire and burn their house down. Unlikely- sure, but wait till it finally happens. Then you will hear about it!

I really like Pcworld- except for the insane number of trackers to block. That earned it a downgrade. The other thing is forget about their buggy galleries. They are just there to inflate page clicks. They barely work with trackers enabled- and without them forget even trying.

An annoying video in the sidebar plays automatically, with sound even. It seems to play when you scroll down. It even plays if you've already paused it.

This site shows 18 trackers via DoNotTrackMe by Abine. Additionally, Privacy Badger by EFF, highlights 15 trackers. Privacy is a concern for users who do not use the aforementioned extensions.
