Summary

Hey! Have you seen the terrific rating above? You must be wondering: “Is it finally a good popup blocker? Should I try it?” Do read the text below to find out if that's something you'd like to give a try.

So, answering your questions: “No and Yes” - it isn’t some “good” popup blocker. PopUpOFF is brilliant: https://github.com/RomanistHere/PopUpOFF/issues/16 - and you should definitely try it if you are as annoyed with popups, cookie notifications, overlays and other sticky things that overlay content as I do.

Why?

  • PopUpOFF doesn’t just block some popups that other developers paid for, but YOU are in control of it. You decide not to have any single overlay on the screen or casually remove only the most annoying things (hi cookie notifications and subscription popups).
  • You can unlock and read PAID content FOR FREE on some websites (see the video above).
  • Size of this extension is 100 times less than any other average popup blocker in the store. Size doesn’t matter? Well… I wouldn't be so sure about that.
  • PopUpOFF is a non-commercial and open-source project. It means no ads, no tracking, everything it has is available for you for free and forever. I am RomanistHere and I’m giving you this piece of better web.

Drawbacks?

  • It still is in development, so there could be bugs or imperfect solutions, I’m working on it solo and there are other things in the world to do. So be gentle, I created it for myself back then, but now I’m doing it for you.
  • PopUpOFF is as addictive as it gets. After you start using it, there would be no way back. You were warned :)

Funciona realmente bien, además se trata de un proyecto Open Source, muy fácil de usar y con muchísimo futuro.

The extension is brilliant, but a bit of feedback, the settings change by themselves from website to website. Add in a menu so we can keep the aggressive setting permanent at all times. Otherwise I highly recommend. You can even read paid articles i can't fault it, just make sure you change the setting to aggressive on all websites.

Installed in agressive mode to remove overlays but it does not remove overlays. Simple as that!
