Block all pop-ups, even, in Google Chrome using AdBlock

The objective can be achieved simply by using 3 Firefox Add-ons:
1. Adblock Plus
2. Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon
3. Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Enjoy your ad-free (at least to some extent) life.


Here's how to do it:

  • Install AdBlock extension in Google Chrome.

  • Go to AdBlock options and make sure you have ad filters enabled. 

  • Now, go to the website in question and wait for the pop-up. Sometimes a pop-up is triggered by some action on the website, such as- clicking on certain area.

  • Assuming the dreaded pop-up is looking you in the face, copy the web address (URL) from the pop-up.

  • Paste the pop-up's URL in the appropriate field. Click the "Block It" button.
That should do it. Enjoy your pop-up-free website.
