PopUpCop stops pop-up advertising and restores tranquility to the net.
PopUpCop is designed to return control of your browsing experience back to you. It does not block all advertisements: it blocks irritating Web site behavior, which is often used for advertisements. Like the ideal of a real police officer, it steps into a volatile situation and uses just enough force to restore calm.
Unlike some of its competitors, PopUpCop does not use site title or URL address matching when determining what to block. It monitors your interaction with the browser, and determines what new windows to block based on a simple collection of rules. It never interferes with normal browsing and will never close the main browser window. If you just want to block popups, you can just install the program and forget it.
PopUpCop is packaged as an Internet Explorer toolbar add-in. After installation, it occupies a small space on the user's toolbar. It safely co-exists with other toolbar add-ins, like the Google toolbar.
