White space. Click somewhere:
The method I used here can be used for anything, even a picture that doesn’t link anywhere. Hover over the image below and you will see that it doesn’t link anywhere. However, click on it and you will still get a pop up! Does this annoying method sound familiar?:
With Better Pop Up Blocker, you can stop these annoying pop ups & other annoyances that the Apple Safari pop up blocker misses.

How Do I Use It?
To use Better Pop Up Blocker, you simply install it and the browser button (a brick pointed diagonally) will show up. It will begin blocking pop ups on new page loads. A regular brick indicates the site is blocked from opening pop ups and everything is working fine. A brick with a light-grey square at the bottom indicates that the site is allowed to open pop ups.
If there is a site that you want to allow pop ups on, just click the Better Pop Up Blocker browser button and it will whitelist it for you. If you want to block it again, just click the button again.
Remember to check out the options page for more options, including a way to block pop ups from plugins such as Flash. You can reach the options page by right-clicking on any website and then selecting “Options | Better Pop Up Blocker”.
