Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Have you ever noticed those annoying little pop ups that jump out on a webpage if your mouse just happens to touch them?
You didn't click on anything, but now you have this annoying little window that you have to wait for, and it takes it's time leaving your screen.
This is called click jacking!
If this annoys you as much as it bothers me, maybe it's time for you to install the NoScript Firefox, ad on
Here is an excerpt from their web site:
I installed this about 5 days ago, and I am amazed at how many things try to load without my knowledge. Like a firewall set to paranoid, this thing needs to be trained to allow the things you want to load, and the beauty is that if you allowed something to load, that you realized after the fact, you didn't want to load, you can easily forbid it from loading instantly and forever.
Something I didn't expect, or see mentioned, was the fact that those annoying little pop unders get nuked too! You know the ones I mean.
The little windows that were hiding behind your browser without you knowing it.
So if you're tired of having the browser control you instead of the other way around, give this little gadget a try.
