Top 10 free popup blockers and how they performed at blocking ads
Sick of popup ads? PopupCheck.com tested a large number of FREE popup blockers and listed the top 10 and their scores in the table below.
In order to qualify, the free popup blocker could not have any trial periods, limitations or other tricks.
Many free popup blocker programs scored well on blocking popups, but because of their over aggressive behavior, failed the popup allowing tests. The allowing tests are designed to test a popup blocker’s ability to distinguish a popup from a window you actually requested.
A free popup blocker is often included inside many of the newer browsers. If the browser has a built in free popup blocker and it scored well enough, we included them in the list as well.
