Pop-Down is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you kill the annoying popups that may appear while navigating on the Internet using Internet Explorer. The tool’s purpose is to help you surf in a clean environment where popups are blocked before you can see them or download their content.
The advantages of being portable
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to block ads for IE on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
Unobtrusive running mode
The tool runs quietly in the system tray, so it doesn’t interfere with your work activity. When called upon, it reveals several configuration settings to tinker with. Setting up the dedicated parameters proves to be nothing but a piece of cake, as you only need to select or deselect most of the options.
Pop-Down gives you the possibility to enable or disable the popup blocking mode by performing a double-click mouse operation on the program’s icon from the system tray.
When it comes to configuration settings, you can make the utility allow popups to be launched directly, allow a maximum number of ads to be displayed, or block all of them, and block webpage dialogs.
The tool is also able to play sound notifications each time a popup is blocked and you can choose between several preset options. Additionally, if you want to add a custom audio file (WAV file format), you need to copy the tracks to the location where the program is saved on your computer. Last but not least, when you hear that a popup is blocked, you can simply press the “Ctrl” key for quickly viewing the ad.
All in all, Pop-Down provides a simple yet efficient software solution for helping you maintain a clean browsing experience for IE.
