Better Pop Up Blocker Comments

A welcome addition to Chrome

Positive Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Better Pop Up Blocker Nov 2011

Compared to Firefox, Chrome isn't that great at blocking popups, even with Adblock. It's one of the few things I miss about Firefox. With this in mind, Better Pop Up Blocker is simply awesome. It's not perfect, but hey, no popups. :D

I recommend switching from the default mode to 'blacklist' mode, where you blacklist individual websites from displaying popups, instead of blocking everything at once. With the default mode on, a lot of websites don't load properly. This includes Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Pandora, and Mediafire. But once you change this setting, everything works great. I couldn't ask for more.
