Windows 7: Chrome overlay & email address harvester blocker

Chrome overlay & email address harvester blocker

Can anyone recommend a good overlay blocker for chrome that will block all those stupid give us your email and sign up for our newsletter, or those popups that ask you to fill out a short survey about your experience on the site or give us your email and you could win ______________. They also dull out everything else until you give them your email or go on a hunting expedition to find the little X. (Wheres Waldo anyone?)

These email harvesting popups are getting way too intrusive. First you could click anywhere on the screen to get past them. Hitting escape also got disabled on some. Nowadays you have to give them your email or find an X button the size of the tip of a pencil.

Everyone knows damn well when you give your email like that it gets sold off to viagra companies. So I need a good overlay blocker to get rid of these. The ones I've tried so far don't work.

Ive tried giving fake emails like F**kYourOverlayPopup@F** to waste space in their database and hoping they would get delivery failed responses to sort through but theres so many overlays on the web anytime you try to read something nowadays even giving a fake email now is becoming too time consuming.

These goddamn overlays are EVERYWHERE now Any good or amazing blockers?

Escape and clicking anywhere else does not work. This one you have to manually X out of it.
