A pop-up blocker refers to any software or application that disables any pop-up, pop-over or pop-under advertisement window that you would see while using a Web browser. Some pop-up blockers may try to close all pop-up windows, some may remove all advertising from a publisher’s Web site, and still others may help you choose which pop-up windows you want to be closed with block list feature.
