This isn't your father's pop-up blocker. SQusi Tracking Blocker watches your browser and halts all Flash-based content, but a rare bug forces some users to reboot their systems.
The toolbar pull-down interface is a snap to use. The few program settings are right on the menu. A couple of settings pop out from simple dialog boxes. We found sQusi most helpful as a Flash blocker. Start it, and you'll never see another Flash ad. You'll also never see Flash-based content you may want to view from sites such as YouTube. However, it just takes a trip to the toolbar menu to temporarily pause or disable sQusi.
We found the Web site white lists and blacklists very effective and easy to use. The utility also cleans your browser cookies and cache. However, cleaning is set manually and can't automatically run at browser close. Some Windows XP SP2 users may suffer from a bug that causes sQusi to disappear from the tool tray. The primary fix is to reboot the operating system.
Anyone who uses the Internet and wants to surf without pop-ups is going to like sQusi. It's easy to install and use, and the free registration takes only an e-mail address.
sQusi is both a free Internet Explorer add-on and a Firefox extension in one package. It is designed to take the clutter out of browsing and to prevent sites such as Facebook.com from tagging and tracking you across the Web. sQusi combines a continuously updated global database with a local one that you can use to override global settings to block or unblock URLs of your choosing. Now you can say goodbye to the Hosts File editors that choke your machine and to multiple add-ons/extensions.
sQusi combines the functionality of several available extensions (ad blocking, script blocking and cookie/cache cleaning) in a single application that requires zero effort on your part. sQusi will work with both Internet Explorer and Firefox on Windows XP and Vista. Version 2.15 has miscellaneous bug fixes.
