I do not need a popup-killer script. I personally just use Mozilla 1.6
and K-meleon 0.8.2. I filter roughly 95% of banner ads too. There are
now plenty of browsers for windows which come with popup-suppression
feature.

You can try Firefox 0.8. Here's a few quotes from Forbes.com:

Building A Better Browser
"Within minutes, it becomes clear that Firebird [renamed Firefox
recently] is a breath of fresh air compared to Explorer. If you're fond
of keeping many browser windows open at once, then you'll like the
tabbed browsing feature native to Firebird which lets you open a new
browser window on a "tab" in order to switch back and forth from one
site to another, without searching through several layers. It's easy,
for example, to keep one window open to a Web mail account, another open
to a news site and still two more open for perusing other sites. It's
also easy to open bookmarks--what Microsoft calls "favorites"--in a new
tab with a single right-click of the mouse.

Tabbed browsing isn't a new feature by any stretch--Netscape Navigator
and Apple's Safari are but two that currently support it--but if you've
never used it before, you'll grow to like it right away.

But the feature you're probably going to like best is that Firebird
blocks unwelcome pop-up advertisements, without requiring that you
download any additional software. And if for some reason there are sites
whose pop-ups you want to see, you can easily build a list of them, and
they'll work. "

13 Reasons To Use Firefox Over IE
"Popup Blocking
In this day in age, an internet browser without a popup blocker is like
having a broadband connection without a fireball. “Firefox stops
annoying popup windows dead in their tracks”, according to Mozilla.org,
and that’s exactly what it does. (...)"

I can heartily recommen Opera 7 for that too. I have almost forgotten
what an unwanted popup looks like (only almost, because I sometimes
have to turn the blocker off for some stupid site to work, and forgets
to do the two keypresses to turn it back on :).

Indeed, Opera has had MDI (which is more general than mere tabbing)
at least since version 2 from 1997 (I never saw a version 1 :)
