Popup blockers are small programs that integrate into your web browser. They prevent the web pages you visit from spawning little windows with advertisements. By installing a popup blocker, you will improve your web browsing experience.
Popup ads are little advertisements that appear when you enter or leave some websites. They are not a security threat because they are generally served by sites you visit. However, they can be annoying and they frequently obstruct the view of the page you are trying to read. Some websites intentionally make their popups difficult to close, forcing you to read their contents. On the most offensive websites, closing popups simply triggers the launch of more popups!
There are many popup blocking utilities available, but please be aware that you do not need to pay for popup blocking features! All the options we recommend are free.
Several companies have developed free popup blocking programs that integrate directly into Internet Explorer’s toolbars. These toolbars also have other features including web searching and quick links to popular content.
