Pop-up Blocker

Hey guys,

I'm currently on Mountain Lion and I'm getting annoyed with pop-ups. I have the default settings turned on in safari that reads "Block pop-ups" but it doesn't help. Especially because I'll get stupid poker world tour or MacKeeper Ads that are coming through even though I have pop-up blocker on. Are there any apps in the App Store or outside App Store that do a better job?

Cheers.

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

I use Google Chrome and I almost never see pop ups.

MacKeeper is Malware and should never be installed. I have no idea why reputable sites allow advertising of malware.

Thanks for that list. Are they via the App Store or downloaded off the net?

Thanks

Some may have versions on the App Store, but click the links in my post to download directly from the developers.
