    free popup blocker!! yaay

    I spent about 3 hours last night and whipped together a nice little popup blocking program, if you are annoyed with popups, you can get my program from my site in my portfolio:

    http://thejefffiles.com/portfolios.php?name=jverkoey

    and download windowViewer. It includes a readme and is pretty simple to use. Tell me what you think!

    I think this should be in the General Discussions board unless you have a question about your implementation.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I got a really neat pop-up blocker on my computer called Mozilla Firefox.

    Cool. Mine's called Opera.

    Yeah, I just installed Firefox on my Windows XP because I got tired of Internet Explorer freezing on me 24/7,. and I thin k it's the best browser I've used.

    I love it when I am surfing the net with my mozilla, and I see the little exclamation point in the bottom left of my screen telling me that I have just avoided one of the most annoying things in the world.

    The Google Toolbar can block popups, too. Pretty nice plugin.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    The Google toolbar is the best popup blocker I've ever d/l. It rarely misses any popups.

    It looks like XP-SP2 will include a popup blocker. However the alternative to popups may be much much worse.

    Opera at home... Googlebar at work. I haven't seen a pop-up that I haven't wanted to see in a very long time.

    I vote for Google toolbar I think that makes installing any other pop up blocker unnecessary.

    Personally, I don't think the google toolbar is all that great. It missed a bunch of them for me when I had Internet Explorer. I had that, Stopzilla, and some other popup blocker running, and nothing seemed to stop the little devils.

    Mozilla all the way, I click the check box in the options and poof all gone. Have you ever been to a web site on someone else's computer that doesn't have pop-up blocking and then realize how sucky internet would really be? It is great.
