It is very simple - choose any site we list that has a no
and link to the sites using our links.
Mostsites provide different ways for webmasters
to link to them. We passionately hate pop ups and
exit consoles so we ensure wherever possible that we use the
no popup link to a site.
If you want to stop popups from a site we dont list then one way
is to press the escape key - esc - as soon as
the popup appears. This will stop it filling in and usually stop
it starting any more
What do we use - the Google
tool bar. This excellent piece of software runs on most Microsoft
systems and if you use IE 5.5 or later can be configured to automatically
block all pop-up ads from anywhere. Use the link above to find out
You can also get software that
blocks pop ups. Try typing "no popup software" into google.com
and you will get a list of popup killers - we have not tried any
so we cant recommend any particular one
Another source of pop ups is ad software - see our article on
and spyware for details
Unfortunately as long as surfers keep buying things from popups
and exit console webmasters will use them and mar the experience
for the rest of us.
