There are a lot of annoying growth hacky things you can do to get people to stay on your site. A common one is to popup a modal whenever a user moves his mouse toward the address bar. The modal then begs you to stay or subscribe for email updates. Frankly, it’s a little needy. But, when I saw dont-go from Tiaan DuPlessis, I couldn’t help but smile.

Most importantly, it might just convince a few visitors to click back.
