from the search results, so you can quickly understand what a page is
about. The pop-up blocker was mostly effective in our tests, except
with floating ads, though its performance seemed a bit slow. You can
specify whether to allow ads from a certain site and whether to display
an icon and play a sound when the toolbar blocks ads. You'll also find
