Pop-up Killers


OS RH 7 1
Could someone recommend a good pop-up killer? I read that Mozilla 1 0 had one included in it or was that just for the windoze version?

Well I don't know a good popup-killer but I'm using Opera, and with it, you have the option to "refuse all pop-up"
It works half of time, but it's enought for me

galeon you acn just turn pop-ups off... probably can in mozilla too.

I guess it's just part of IE that they refuse to let things like that be done too easily, maybe they cut a deal with someone!

THE DEVIL! huh huh

I have heard (from Winbloze worshippers) that they don't allow it in it IE easily because IE is trying to be completely website compliant, and apparently some websites won't allow you to access them if you don't allow pop-ups. (I heard FORD.com is one of them?)

Sounds like a bunch of conspiring bastards to me!

Whoa, so when you type a period, it makes the Copyright sign? I thought you did that so when we quote you, you would sue us.
