Pop-up Blocking in Mozilla and Netscape

Wednesday August 14th, 2002

CNET has an article about pop-up blocking in Mozilla and Netscape 7.0. According to the report, the 'Open unrequested windows' checkbox won't be included in Netscape's next release. The piece, which includes quotes from James "Kovu" Russell, says that the option was removed because AOL relies on pop-up advertisements for revenue. However, Netscape 7.0 users can easily restore the feature.

Perhaps this isn't the best place to ask this question, but on the topic of blocking things that some people may find annoying, how does one block referrals in Netscape 7?

iCab and Opera have a feature that blocks referrals to all sites altogether or to all sites except those in the domain you're currently browsing.

Can I do this in Netscape 7?

Thanks in advance.
