Popups are almost everywhere you go on the internet and they range from the mild to the really annoying.I at one point would just ignore them but as of late I have encountered some really annoying ones that are almost like viruses. With that being said I decided to get the Best Popup blocker for Firefox and Chrome so that I could browse in peace.In this article I will show you the Popup blocker I am using with great success and that you can start using too.
Worst Popups I have seen
The worst popups that I encountered as of late include one that would open a new tab and present a message with some warning or something but the real annoying part is that as soon as I close that popup window a new one would appear and so on. A variation of that one was one that once the popup window loaded it would cause the browser to feeze up totally. In those cases I had to go into task manager and force end the browser activity and on launch not reload old tabs.
Another one that really did it for me and had me go to popup blockers would open a new window make a horrible sound repeatedly. Told me that my Windows firewall was breached and hammered me with Popups and sounds. I could hardly read what was on-screen. Force closing the browser in task manager helped but it was so bad that it affected windows itself at times.
That was it and I decided to look into popup blockers and luckily I found one of the best ones to protect your self while you browse in both chrome and Firefox.
