Everyone...go to www.mozilla.org and download their latest browser, Firefox. It is sooo much better than IE. It blocks all popup windows (ads) except from sites that you choose to allow (eg. I have allowed UT so that I can I can receive PMs).
I'm very impressed.

I'm using FireFox (So far it's pretty damn good!). I have about four diff spy/adware blockers and removers, and antivirus software running and STILL I'm getitng pop up ads. I've got the latest versions of AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy which are both meant to be pretty damn good. I did have ZoneAlarm running to but removed it since it went haywire and let oretty much everything in. Any further help would be MUCH appreciated!!!

24 hours and no popups for me so far, and I've visited sites that normally have them.

Hey Kashi, does this program support Big5, Japanese, and Korean? I mean for example when u enter a site like japanese yahoo, did it shows japanese or just ?????? for everything....
I hope you understand what I am trying to say...

It definitely supports Japanese, because I use Japanese sites every day. I would assume it supports Korean too. What is big5?

As i know you were all worried sick i thought it best to tell you ... no more pop ups. :)

Unfortunately the mozilla mail client, Thunderbird, didn't live up to expectations. It's still prerelease so maybe in 6 months time it will be up to scratch.

I've been using FireFox for about four months. Version 0.9 is supposed to be coming out soon, but according to the roadmap its a few weeks overdue, so I can't say when.
As to the mailer, I don't use it. I like having a very lightweight browser that I can decorate to my own taste.

0.9 has been out for a week now antoniseb! I love it!
