Apps Stop Annoying Pops
Is there anyone who doesn't hate the annoying pop-up windows that litter your Web path (not to mention your Windows tray)?Is there anyone who doesnt hate the annoying pop-up windows that litter your Web path (not to mention your Windows tray)? Dont Panic, Surf Pal and Pop-Up Stopper, three browser plug-ins from Panicware, attempt to put the power over pop-ups into users hands. All three essentially look for the code enabling the pop-ups and offer a variety of features and browser options, including sound alert, icon flash alert, panic button and clear cache.
Dont Panic, which costs about $30, offers the most options and is the most compatible, integrating with America Online, Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers. The $25 Surf Pal, with its simple Internet Explorer-integrated interface, proved quite useful.
