Hi malware fighters,

How good is your browser at pop-up blocking: http://www.popuptest.com/

IE 7 did OK, except for the floating popup and banner.

Thanks polonus.

Hi CharleyO,

Thanks for trying it out, SRWare Iron also has an incredibly good pop-up blocker, you see them load but never appear, then Fx is also fairly well, but allowed these ones: http://www.popuptest.com/goodpopups.html else you could not normally use the Internet,

hi!

tested IE8 (no add-ons) with all the available tests on the site...

everything from the common popups was blocked

from the less common popups these ones were not blocked
-floating popup
-drop down popup
-floating banner
-sticky popup

all good pop-ups worked!

yours
