Tackling Annoying Pop-Up Ads

Pop-up ads are time consuming, distracting and annoying. Currently, there are tons of free download tools to help combat the pop-up problem. I recommend downloading the Google Toolbar which runs while you're browsing the web (with either Internet Explorer or Firefox) and blocks pop-ups before they appear. The interface is easy to use and the toolbar includes many more useful tools including custom buttons and a word translator. Once you download this free fabulous tool, you can enjoy net surfing without the hassle of constantly closing pop-up windows, and the ease of having the google search tool at the top of every page!


To get more info about Pop-ups and this useful tool visit the Google Pop-up Blocker.

Download the Google Toolbar.

I have had the google toolbar for a long time and I love it, it really does nix about 99% of pop-ups and I use google a lot so not having to go to the google homepage to search is awesome.

Given Firefox already has built-in pop-up blocking, isn't getting the Google Toolbar in order to block pop-ups redundant? You can also block pop-ups in Safari by selecting "Block Pop-up Windows" in the Safari menu, or by pressing Apple+K ('K' for 'blocK', I guess).
