Just use Phoenix. Blocks pop-ups automatically.

Mozilla... in stripped-down email-and-IRCless form. It's faster than IE6, too...

Plus it's got the coolest installation routine ever.

Unzip it.

Opera has a tremendous built in pop up stopper.

But Opera ain't free, and Phoenix is just as fast.

Try POW!. It will let you add any popup to an "ignore" list.... and you will never see it again

Thumbs up

Try the proxomitron 4.4.
It's a very customizable proxy that works with all browsers and it's freeware.
