Pop-up blockers

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Does anybody have a recommendation for a Pop-up advertisement blocker app.? It seems as if they are few and far between for the Mac OS. Currently running 9.1 on an OLD iMac.

Avoid porn sites Seriously, I can't think of one for OS 9. In omniweb, there's the option to not allow them, but it's cocoa so it won't run under 9.1. Sorry. Good question... i'd like to hear some answers too.

This works for OS X, and you might be able to use the hosts entry in 9 to do the same thing.

I second the vote for Omniweb. I no longer worry about ads and popups.

for ads on websites in classicOS there is a little control panel called webfree. i thought there was a little OSX app called popunder or something to stop ad windows from spawning...
