Pop-up blockers are applications that prevent unwanted pop-up windows from opening on a Web page. Many of these blockers also stop banner ads and protect the computer from exploits and malicious cookies during Web browsing. Pop-up blockers may run as extensions on the Web browser or as freestanding applications. They usually include an option for the user to allow pop-ups from specific sites as necessary.
