PopUpCop - Popup Killer Software
|PopUpCop stops popup advertising and restores
tranquility to the net!
PopUpCop is designed to return control of your browsing
experience back to you. PopUpCop does not block all advertisements:
it blocks irritating Web site behavior, which is often used
for advertisements. Like the ideal of a real police officer,
PopUpCop steps into a volatile situation and uses just
enough force to restore calm.
|Because there are millions of very different
people using the Web, and because each may have a different
irritation threshold, PopUpCop is completely customizable. A
PopUpCop user can choose what techniques and technologies to
block, from blocking nothing to turning off images, Java applets,
techniques. Users also may want to change what to block depending
on where they are browsing. To make all this flexibility easy
to control, PopUpCop features two key control mechanisms: the
Internet irritation indicator and the Internet irritation level
slider. These two controls work together to provide information
about the techniques that a web site is using and to make it
easy for the user to block a collection of techniques.
Unlike some of its competitors, PopUpCop does not use
site title or URL address matching to determining what to block.
It monitors your interaction with the browser, and determines
what new windows to block based on a simple collection of rules.
It never interferes with normal browsing and will never close
the main browser window. If you just want to block popups, you
can just install the program and forget it.
PopUpCop is packaged as an Internet Explorer toolbar
add-in. After installation, it occupies a small space on the
user's toolbar. It safely co-exists with other toolbar add-ins,
like the Google toolbar.
Internet Explorer 5 or later
Windows 95 or higher
|User Reviews - The Best In A Comparison
of 25+ Popup Killer Programs
In a long and very detailed trial of over 25 different popup
killer programs, this is the Best!!! It seems it was designed
for Internet Explorer Users In Mind. A PERFECT match! I will
be suggesting this program to all my site visitors to stop the
ads on my own site... considering I have it hosted on a "free"
server. Thanks PopUpCop
