    Mac Gurus,

    I was wondering if any of you knew of any links to some good-free pop-up blockers. (for OSX Panther)

    thanks ahead of time
     
  2. Safari and Opera both have built-in popup blockers. I prefer Safari.

    Thanks.

    Having been away from Macs for so long, I was completely unaware.
    Maybe I should read the manuals!

    :) the pop-up blocker in safari is quite good, it's easy to turn on and off in the safari menu item.

    With the latest release of safari v1.2 it has finally become the only web browser I need, 100% compatibility with every site I surf to and it's very fast.
     
  5. I've found it to still be a little too slow for some Javascript apps, so I have to keep a copy of IE on here.

    If I must use another browser, I use camino, it hasn't failed me yet.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have had no problem with pop-ups since.

    Remember that Micro$oft stopped support of Internet Exploder for mac a little while ago, so there won't be any updates in the future. Safari is all I ever need.

    The only time I use IE is when I have to register for classes, because of some stupid setting in the server that wont let it work with Safari. I had to spend half-an-hour fighting with my password before I tried it with IE and got in immediately. Safari's awesome!

    There are some sites, and I'd imagine servers too, out there that actually *specifically* go out of their way to disable safari support. Pretty annoying...they are usually PC-centric sites anyway though, but it's still lame that people'd do that.

    Now that you mention it, I had the same problem when registering for classes at my University. Although even IE on a windows machine only works about half the time with my university's registration system. So I guess Safari isn't all I ever need. :bawl:
