Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This free pop-up blocker takes care of its business but omits a few common perks found in similar applications. Hitware Popup Killer Lite's feature set is rather anemic. You can choose to allow pop-ups from certain sites by manually adding their URLs to a whitelist, but you can't do so via a quick hot-key combination. Also, although the app can alert you to blocked ads by playing a sound or flashing in your taskbar, you won't find a log file for viewing a list of eliminated pop-ups. The program tackles just about all standard pop-ups with ease, although it can't put down Flash or banner ads. Still, since this app's performance is mostly good and it doesn't cost anything, we can see how it will be an attractive option to Web surfers who just need a pop-up blocker and nothing else.
