Lots of pop-under ads get through Chrome's built-in popup blocker. How can I block such ads? Whenever I click on the links, pop-under ads will be activated. How can I block these ads? I have been looking for extensions but could not find anything that really works. Thank you.

In Firefox, Adblock Plus eliminates all ads from pages I visit including pop-unders. There is a version for Chrome which you can try.

Download the Chrome version of the extension from here.

There are a few ads that are allowed by the extension for certain reasons. They can, however, be easily added to the list of ads to be blocked.

We operate a Popunder traffic network and although most users to our sites like the service (it's a non intrusive popunder that has a bounce of just around 30% or so), Adblock Plus does it for those who do not like it.
