I have read the pro's and cons in then threads in your link. I personally find it rather annoying whilst the odd popup is ok i guess, this one takes the biscuit, each time i click on a link, another NOVATRIS popup.
If i ignore it i end up with loads of minimised novotris in the task bar.
There's a few threads like this one at the moment and I've just glanced through some of the comments. It really is simple. Firefox with the Adblock Extension...what pop-ups, what ads, what sponsered links? I've not seen any in many months.
Hi gudgulf. Thanks for the feedback. Of-course Adblock will only work if the particular site is blocked. I also use a well stocked hosts file. But beyond that I think that it's just FF/AdB. In any case, I never see ads, popups and sponsored links. In fact, I can't remember the last time that I saw anything of that sort. And I've got Java enabled.
