    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. :mad:

    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'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.
