OxFF Publisher's description
from Mircea Puiu
Another way to block popups
The annoying popup ads have literally exploded on our beloved Internet. Nonetheless, the pop blockers, killers (or however they may be called) have also been "exploding". Most of them come to us against some costs, others are for free.
Some of them take too much control of our surfing, not letting legitimate windows pop up sometimes. Others are too complex, providing us with a lot of option lists and settings which may not match the different contexts of surfing.
OxFF works with the following assumption: A legitimate popup window is a new window opened as a result of a mouse click on an HTML element within a browser page.
The OxFF application will allow only one browser instance work at a time, stopping any other attempt to open a new one. In case of a legitimate pop-up, it opens the new window, but kills the previous one, memorizing its "navigated" URL for "Back" functionality. The number of stopped popups is displayed at the bottom of OxFF.
Logically, OxFF is structured in two modules:
- One module keeps track of the web browser instances registered on your computer
- Another module polls the mouse state (position and buttons)
OxFF allows only one browser instance. Any further instance is forced to quit by the instance tracking module. Please notice that OxFF will treat even a new browser instance created by you (when starting another Internet Explorer session) as a non-legitimate popup.
Remember, you can disable OxFF at any time. When re-enabling OxFF, any new popup will be intercepted and only the very first opened browser instance will be kept alive.
