Editors' Review

+
This pop-up blocker's middling performance keeps it from outdoing its numerous and more capable competitors. True to its name, FilterGate Free PopupFilter won't cost you a dime, but that's the most positive thing we have to say about it. In our tests, the program stopped only about half the pop-up and Flash ads we threw at it, a rather disappointing statistic. The interface is bland, but we do appreciate that the app can minimize to your system tray for quick access. This program offers most essential features for its class but doesn't provide you with anything special. You can choose to allow pop-ups by adding sites to a whitelist and specifying what types of ads to block. The log provides you with a list of quashed ads, but the app doesn't flash or emit a sound when doing its job. Downloading this free program certainly won't do any harm, but we question how much good it will really accomplish.

"Allows pop ups to pass through"

April 11, 2004

 |  Version: FilterGate Free PopupFilter 5.21

Summary

The program is not everything the company claims. It allows popups to get through. The program will not remove with its uninstaller and the company does not offer support through email.

"Works great"

March 30, 2004

 |  Version: FilterGate Free PopupFilter 5.21

Summary

This program works great! I have downloaded several 'popup blockers' and none worked until FilterGate. Be advised that you HAVE to read the instructions before using - clean out cache and remove spyware - for it to work properly. Using Windows 98

"Filtergate stops Popups, siteloads."

March 15, 2004

 |  Version: FilterGate Free PopupFilter 5.21

Summary

Filtergate DOES stop popups.. However, it also does a fine job of blocking HTML code, returning errors in, for instance, Google and stopping Download.com and CNET.com from opening up. Before you asked, yes, I did exclude all three sites from filtering, and no, it didn't seem to take this in account. altogether, I rate it 2 out of 10. I would have given it a one, but ease of installation, and removal, were above par.
