"Love it, hate it. Strong, occasionally too strong"

November 14, 2012  |  By Big_Data

 |  Version: Better Pop Up Blocker 2.1.6

Pros

This blocks the sneakiest most obnoxious of pop-ups that no other blocker has any success with. I would give this aspect of the application 5 stars.

Cons

I've written long reviews or entered lots of information on a form. When I hit the SUBMIT button, nothing happens. Then I notice that Better Pop Up Blocker blocked the confirmation or next step.

When you click to allow popups on the page Better Pop Up Blocker refreshes the page. That includes deleting all of the information that had been entered. HUGE PAIN! And this happens frequently enough to have me consider uninstalling Better Pop Up Blocker.

And then there have been weird things. I went to look at a map and the page never loaded. I refreshed the page, re-did the address entry, and still a blank page. I wondered if the site was down or malfunctioning.

Out of curiosity, I "allowed popups" on the page. BOOM! Immediately, the map functionality was working.

In this case, it wasn't a popup. After entering the address and pressing ENTER, I was taken to a new page but the page stayed gray.

Summary

This is one of those situations where one has to decide if we're better with or without something.
Do I want to go back to fighting popups? Can I live with re-doing forms?

With one vendor, I had to process a transaction 2x because the confirmation was on a popup window that was blocked the first time. The money is on hold for both transactions.

Because this application is so powerful I've kept it for several years. I just wish it were a little less brutal.
