NoAds

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

In spite of a few pluses, this pop-up blocker performs poorly. To NoAds's credit, it does support quite a few browsers beyond Internet Explorer, including Firefox, AOL, and Netscape. It comes loaded with a list of common pop-up ads to target, such as those that come from Angelfire home pages. Still, it lets through most pop-ups you might encounter in an average surfing session. Although NoAds lets you add new targets to its databases, most users will abandon this complicated and inconvenient process before completion. The app offers no white list or options for allowing pop-ups, and it's utterly powerless against banner and Flash ads. Besides its support for multiple browsers, the best news about this application is its freeware price. Because of that, we can cautiously recommend NoAds to very occasional Web surfers, but everyone else will find it an unacceptable solution.
