Another forum specific to discussions on Computer software, including Internet software, that you might find other discussions on Popup Blockers can be found at:
Popup Blockers actually discussed yesterday:
While Google Toolbar has a wonderful Popup Blocker and does block the common pop-ups used in websites, it is only 75% successful with blocking all types of pop-ups...if I can find the reference, I'll post it...also if I can find the Pop-up Blocker test website that I used for testing different Pop-up Blockers, I'll post that as well.
Also, you might consider using Mozilla Firebird that has a built-in pop-up blocker or if you really like IE, you could try using MyIE2, which is basically a skin for the IE engine, but also has unique features, such as ad and pop-up blocking.
Also, bare in mind that when the new version of IE is released (if it's released since M$ was recently fined like $500 million for patent infringement related to developing IE when a patent for the same technology was available back in the mid 90's), M$ does plan on including a pop-up blocker.
