Strictly block all popup requests from any website
It is common for streaming, shopping, and WordPress sites to open unwanted pop-ups or redirect users to ad pages. This free, open-source Chrome extension blocks all types of popups and popunders before they are issued. It pauses window opening requests for user attention. Unlike other popup and ad blocker extensions, this one blocks requests on the original page rather than closing the target pages.
You will get badge count and optional page notification when a popup is blocked. A badge counter over the notification increments if more than one identical request is issued. For previously visited sites, the extension automatically allows or denies requests. It identifies the action based on your previous decision.
Supported Blocking Methods:
What does happen if I have this extension and a website tries to open a popup?
The extension blocks this request and displays a notification on the top right side of the page. Enjoy the browse distraction-free browsing. You can:
1. Deny the request
2. Allow the request
3. Open the request in a background tab
4. Redirect the current page to the requested source
Do I still need an AdBlock extension?
This extension does not block any network request or ads like adblock extensions. It is a single-purpose extension to protect you against popups and popunders. For a better browsing experience, use this extension along with uBlock Origin. Consider it as a complementary extension to reduce distractions and disturbances.
Does this extension support keyword shortcuts?
Yes, visit "chrome://extensions/shortcuts" to configure your custom shortcuts for opening the UI or denying the last action.
Can I ask the extension not to show page notifications when a popup is blocked?
You can open the toolbar interface and mute all notifications or notifications for a single page.
