The google MKII ToolBar beta seems to block everything that is created by a webpage, irrespective of whether or not it's a result of a user clicking on a link...
I think it works very well. It's easy to force the link to open - you hold down CTRL whilst clicking. I think most of the other pop-up stoppers also work in a similar way.
Hopefully the next round of internet browsers will build in some blocking functionality anyway. I know that Opera 7.0 does.

Yep, Opera 7.11 allows you to only accept popups that you specifically request.... one of it's many great features! drbrain msg:1476699 4:32 pm on Jul 3, 2003 (gmt 0)
Netscape 7.1 and Mozilla both have pop-up blocking (does 7.0 have pop-up blocking? I don't recall). They do not block unrequested popups. tedster msg:1476700 7:13 pm on Jul 3, 2003 (gmt 0)
drbrain, is that a typo? Do you mean that Mozilla does not block requested pop-ups? jatar_k msg:1476701 7:19 pm on Jul 3, 2003 (gmt 0)
it must be because Mozilla does not block requested pop-ups only unrequested.
You would be surprised how many sites create new windows in the unrequested style and they get blocked. I haven't really looked at the specific code but I can only assume they are not instantiated by the actual click.

Doh! Yes that was a typo.
What I meant was "Mozilla blocks unrequested popups".
Does not get blocked.
Does get blocked.
