Aftermarket pop-up blockers?

The pop-up blocker in Safari 6.0.1 doesn't stop Netflix, Mac Keeper, or a number of other pop-ups. In fact, Safari's blocker has sucked for years.

Any recommendations on an extension or app that will take care of ALL pop-ups?

Have you tried AdBlock? It's one of the main-page items in the Safari Extensions gallery. I've used it for years on Firefox and Chrome.

I run several ad-blockers. ClickToFlash, Safari AdBlock, GlimmerBlocker and JavaScript Blocker are just a few. I never see pop-ups and very rarely see ads.

I've used AdBlock and never see the MacKeeper spam popups. It never ceases to amaze me that a supposedly reputable company keeps using this extremely unprofessional and intrusive scam advertising. I'd classify MacKeeper as a virus.
