ever had strange emails pop up form spammers and you cant reply to them because the address doesnt exist anymore?

this is how they do it

Popular belief holds that the Internet represents a completely connected system. It turns out that's just not true.

The way they describe things , it's like the internet is it's own little universe, complete with black holes.

What I hate are the pop ups that cover the whole screen... AND NOTHING COMES UP! Just a big, blank, white square! I am running three different pop up stoppers, and I keep getting the BIG WHITE SQUARE!

Aaaaarrrrggghh!

lol personally I hate the ones that hijack the browser window instead of being a popup.

If you don't care to install Mozilla (due to its bugginess bugzilla.mozilla.org... or whatever),
Google's new toolbar effectively takes care of popups.

Yes Mozilla is an open source project.

Google bar is nice but it IS spyware.


It tracks your goings about, for its search engine database.

But the pop up blocker is nice

A lot of good info here.

Has anyone tried any of the other 'open source browsers out there?

How about people talking about open source vs commercial/spy/system software?

If you like IE due to it's capability of displaying even the most horribly written web site or some other bizarre reason try using this...

www.avantbrowser.com...

It's freeware (no spyware), it's only 1.1 mb and it's basically a cover for IE. It has some nice features including blocking popups. The best feature is multiple browser windows in one. That way you don't have multiple IE processes killing your machine if you are surfing many sites. I personally love it because I can have 20 browser windows with no strain on the system and this is essential when researching (for me). There are others out there which you can find on download.com but I would recommend this one.
