Safari: Using The Pop-Up Blocker

Perhaps one of the most appreciated features of Safari is its built-in Pop-Up blocker. If you've spent any time at all on the Web, you're probably all too familiar with the annoying windows that pop up over and under the Web pages you're trying to view. Sometime these windows contain important information, but most of the time, they're occupied by advertisements. Safari allows you to ban irritating pop-up windows from your browsing experience with a single click. Simply choose Safari > Block Pop-Up Windows from the menu bar and say goodbye to unwanted advertisements.

Safari's pop-up blocker works so well that you may forget that pop-up windows even exist. But sometimes it works too well. Many sites these days post warnings on their main pages stating that you may miss information if your browser employs a pop-up blocker, but if you ever come across a Web site that -doesn't seem to be working properly (for instance, if you're clicking a link that -doesn't seem to be doing anything), try turning off Safari's pop-up blocker.
