Eliminate Pop-ups (was Re: Tell me what's really on your mind)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There are several programs available which will remove the dreaded pop-ups.  I use the Google Toolbar which is a free and extremely convenient utility. 
 
Features
 ? Search the web with Google from any site - since it is a toolbar.
 ? New! Eliminate pop-up ads *
 ? New! Fill in forms with one click **
 ? New! Link a weblog to the page you're visiting *
 ? New! Restrict your search to pages located in a specific country *
 ? Search just within the pages of a site
 ? Highlight search terms on a page
 ? Customize the layout of your toolbar
 
 
Try it and you will def. like it.

Two MAJOR problems:  The site is ad-supported, and there are ads everywhere ? including the dreaded pop-ups.  Also, the site gives (sells?) your email address to ?targeted clients?, unless you ?opt-out?.  I personally don?t believe the ?opt-out? option works, so I?ve never registered.
