Chrome and Firefox: Pop-ups are back, baby! They offer 10% off, they ask you to subscribe to newsletters (sorry), they pull up a chat window so customer service can help you spend your money. If those chat pop-ups freak you out, try blocking them with the Hello, Goodbye extension.
Hello, Goodbye currently blocks chat pop-ups from 16 different chat providers. You can see the filter list here, in case you need to export it to a browser other than Chrome or Firefox.
If you want to hide every type of pop-ups, you’ll need an ad blocker like uBlock Origin. You can block almost anything on a website with uBlock, using a picker element that lets you select an offending part of a site and add it to your blacklist. It’s a very powerful tool—too powerful for some, which is why extensions like Hello, Goodbye are useful if you don’t want to totally nuke every single pop-up message.
