View Full Version : Safari 2 Not Blocking Pop Ups?

It could just be me, but in the last few days I have found pop-ups showing up under Safarie vers 2.0 (412) the Tiger install default.

Anyone else noticed this?

I have also come across a "slide across" style of ad"

I was going into BT territory initially so that more annoyware was evident was no surprise but Safari until now has put it in its place.
Any thoughts?

There are ways using javascript to avoid pop-up blockers. Macosrumours, if it still exists, had some or other funny window trick that used to get around it, along with quite a few other sites. I just avoid visiting those sites altogether, or run them through Privoxy (a downloadable and installable proxy) first.

This has also happened to firefox also.
