I rarely get pop-ups, if I need to block them because they start getting annoying, i hit Control + Shift + P and it starts up Panicware's Pop Up Stopper.

I run Phoenix, which is based on Moz, and I never get pop-up ads, either.

It just shows how much of a hardware installer and basic e-mail junky I am.... I didn't know such things existed that actually work. I am downloading Mozilla to give it a try.

If you want a pop up blocker and a really good web browser try this www.crazybrowser.com It not only blocks pop-ups but it gives you away to have like ten websites onpen at a time in a nice little package

Technically it doesn't block pop-ups, it just denies connection to the proper server to recieve the content.

Mozilla, Phoenix, and Opera (along with probably lots of other browsers) support tabbed browsing.

Before my power went out (grrrr), I had about 15 different pages open at the same time.

Opera does not support tabbed browsing; Mozilla was the first, and is to my knowledge is still the only major browser to have true tabbed browsing. CrazyBrowser, I believe (though not 100% sure), is a hack that does the same thing K-Meleon does, which is basically using a 'layer' to give the illusion that one instance of the program (i.e. one window) is handling multiple documents. It may also do it like Opera. Opera, of course, is famous for its MDI (Multiple Document Interface) system, where documents are handled by the program instead of the OS (which may reduce memory usage). Mozilla, unlike Opera, can have new tabs and new windows, which does reduce usage of memory. Plus, there are a lot of tabbed browsing addons.

Opera is cool because you can tile the windows (tabs) and actually see more than one window at a time. (At least this is true in version 7 for windows) It also has the pop-up blocker and other neato features.

I like Opera because it renders pages faster than Mozilla. It doesn't follow the same standards, it seems, and I've gotten used to the way Mozilla does it. Plus, I use Mozilla's mail client, because of its new bayesian-based Junk Mail filters.

If you're a Mozilla (Phoenix, etc) user -- and want to speed up the render time, go here. Theres a little preference you can set. I noticed a big speed change. Still not as fast as IE or Opera, but a lot faster than the normal Mozilla build.

That doesn't actually speed anything up; it's just an illusion that, depending on the user, seems to either make rendering seem faster or slower (K-Meleon, the fastest Mozilla-based browser for Windows does the opposite). What does actually speed Mozilla up on new servers is Pipelining, which is basically an experimental feature that takes more info in each packet of data from the server, thereby reducing the amount of time taken to load a page. There is a UI preference for it in Advanced/HTTP Networking.

Opera 7 has gotten to be a tremendously awesome. If it had all the IE features, I'd use it as my main browser. However, it does not and I use it for some occasions.

On the topic of popup stoppers, you should get Privoxy at sourceforge.net Basically, it's open source (no ads, little sys mem usage) and you can add in all the things you want to block (other than the defaults) through their simple little coding... Just a bit better than anything out there.
