    Safari can block pop ups, but can it block pop unders?

    I think it does most, but there are some new scripts out that have not yet been addressed... methinks... but somebody correct my ignorance on the subject

    It lets some pop-unders through, but they will probably have a fix for it in the next security update.

    Mac Daily News serves pop unders, too.

    The advertisers come up with new ways to beat the blocker, Apple makes a fix, they figure it out again...wash rinse repeat.

    I've gotten to the point of running DNS at my house, and answering for domains I don't want. Just point them to 127.0.0.1 and nothing goes.

    Travelocity uses pop unders on your first search. I never buy off them, only search for the airline with the cheapest fare, then head to their site and save myself the booking fee and pop unders.
