Pop-ups are everywhere, in their all invasive forms, trying to thrust their content into our overworked brains. But the good news is that, if we know how to use pop-up blockers, we can avoid them easily, and even decide which ones we want and which we don’t! Internet Explorer has been known for having built-in pop-up blockers. However, some pop-ups may slip through the cracks, or the default settings of your browser could be blocking content you actually want. We have some simple instructions to help you customize the new IE 9 pop-up blocker.
