Editors' Review


Despite a poorly designed interface, ActiveCaption/Active Pop-up Defense offers some useful features to enhance your surfing experience.

Installing the program is fairly easy, and you'll automatically get a new toolbar added to your Internet Explorer title bar. This program supports a number of popular search engines including Google, AltaVista, and MSN search. The toolbar's customizable drop-down menu offers easy access to news, shopping, and educational sites. We like the bookmark manager and eight buttons that allow us to access our favorite sites with one click. The pop-up blocker worked moderately well in our tests blocking the simplest pop-ups, though it didn't stop banners and Flash ads.

ActiveCaption/Active Pop-up Defense's interface and even the toolbar could use some sprucing up. Both are beset with grayish, rudimentary backgrounds and buttons, and they lack creativity. Brushing off the aesthetics, Web researchers and savvy surfers will find this toolbar to be a useful Web-surfing companion.

"Very cool - well worth $10"

February 25, 2004

 |  Version: ActiveCaption/Active Pop-Up Defense 2


Very simple and useful. I especially like the "speed buttons" it puts on the Window title bar. A neat use of space that would just be wasted anyway.
