Popups on my new iMAC

I didnt think Macs and Safari were prone to popup windows. Yes, I have the block popups activated in Safari. It only happens in Myspace so far but its the same ad anytime I click anything. I searched for popup blockers for Mac and it doesnt seem any exsist, what should I do?

Yes Myspace. I get the vast majority of my business from there. Are there any 3rd party popup blockers for Macs?

Pop up blockers are never perfect. The problem is, sometimes sites have a button you click on that opens a new window (one you actually want), so the blocker shouldn't block this. Some sites use that fact to open popups.

Having said that, firefox + adblock. No popups, no ads, just whatever it is you actually wanted to look at It's not as 'mac friendly' as it should be, and it's slow on older computers, but still well worth using just for adblock.

Might want to throw in NoScript as well in FireFox.

MySpace is a very Mac unfriendly place.
