I use the Altavista toolbar that has the popup blocker in it
this allows you to translate webpages that are in different
languages. It doesn't translate every word perfectly but
you can read the webpage with it.
i forgot 2 that by using mozilla it has a pretty decent popup blocker. come to think of it, since i've been using mozilla, popup block hasn't beeped me saying it stopped something, least i can't recall it lately.
