    Same rating here. I wonder which popup software results in 100.

    According to their main site, Firefox 0.9.0 scored 100%. The only one.
    I got 85% too.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Test your popup ad blocker software (All)

    Using Firefox .92, the test stalled for me on OnClick-link popup opening method - nothing happened and I could go no further. But I will say that one test did allow a new tab to open, perhaps because of the TabBrowser extension I have installed (it's been flaky anyway).

    Mozilla 1.7.1 with PopupManager activated achieved 100%

    I only installed Mozilla because IE6.0 shuts down whenever i try to open this thread.

    It hung on me in the same spot Mark, using the same Firefox. I relaunched from that same link, and it completed successfully. Got 100% !!

    Using MyIE2, I can't even get to the site! Does that rate as 0% or 100%? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    I don't know about the rating, but I'm glad it's YourIE2 and not Mine! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I'll have to give that a shot later this evening, if time permits. As it stands, the computer I am on at the moment has larger issues than pop-up ads. It came down with a horrible virus called "McAfee" that has wrecked the current installation of Windows. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Re: Test your popup ad blocker software (All)

    I don't trust the site. I just tried it with Avant Browser, which I found was fairly effective at blocking pop-ups. It supposedly failed ALL the tests, although only 1 popped up. Something's strange.
