Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Unlike many similar programs, this free toolbar offers reliable pop-up protection, along with a couple of other handy features. In our tests the program did a fine job of quashing most pop-ups, banners, and Flash ads we threw its way. You can allow pop-ups with a quick keystroke or by adding from certain sites to the whitelist. In addition, the toolbar can stop instant-messaging pop-ups, disable background sounds on Web pages, and detect and remove spyware. We found GoGoData's adware-blocking skills a mixed bag. It did let several malicious programs run, but it blocked them from sneaking into the start-up menu, so our PC was clean after reboot. As a search portal, this program is fairly capable, as it trolls popular engines, such as Yahoo and Google, for results. You also get a secure password manager that can automatically fill Web login forms, as well as a tool that refreshes pages at user-specified intervals. The ability to quickly access stock quotes, your five favorite news sites, and weather rounds out this application's feature set. All things considered, this free and capable toolbar makes a quality pick for people who want to surf the Web ad-free.
