popup blocker


Hi,

I was searching the web for popup blockers for linux and was wondering you folks would have any recommendations.

Thanks!

Check the advanced preferences of Mozilla.

I prever using something insanely configurable like Privoxy.

Phoenix has an unwanted popup blocker, works great. Phoenix runs the fastest out of all the mozilla based browsers, it's basically mozilla lite, give it a try.

Konqueror as well has a setting to let you choose between allowing/disallowing and asking for pop-ups. I have mine set for ask, because sometimes popups are used for good and not evil...

I just did a quick search on my site, and I found two utilities for Linux: Privoxy and WebCleaner. I think that Privoxy is the the more popular.

If you are looking for a server version check WebWasher. It's developed by Siemens (a quality german company *g*).

Mozilla's pop-up blocking is different: only unrequested pop-ups, meaning ads, ads and ads. It still pops up requested ones (that you click) such as your address book in Web-based e-mail.

When I'm on a wintendo I'll install WebWasher by default because it's quick and easy configurable. The Linux version last time I checked had some stuff disabled, that's bad...
