Does ANY browser block THESE popups - really irritating

Hi all
I REALLY LOATHE with venom these little popups that can appear over text you are reading - and there doesn't seem to be anyway of stopping them unless you totally don't touch your mouse.

If people thing this is a good way of advertising then they must come from a different planet - as I certainly won't either visit the site or buy the product they are trying to sell.

The whole idea of online advertising IMO is vastly overblown - most people I know hate it and do everything they can to avoid it unless they are specifically looking for something so why people think its BIG BUSINESS is beyond me.

Image encosed.

Conventional Ad-Blockers and pop up blockers seem ineffective against this type of sneakware

cheers
jimbo.
