    I'm upset Google removed the Better Pop Up Blocker extension. It never failed to block any sort of pop up unless I whitelist the website.

    If anyone know where I can find it or a good alternative, I'd like to know :infinity:

    I too used to use Better Pop Up Blocker, but I actually got rid of it a while before it disappeared, because it was last updated like 3 years ago and it appeared to slow down newer Chrome versions for me.

    So the replacements I've found for the most useful functions of Better Pop Up Blocker are:

    - "JavaScript Popup Blocker" (seems to be the best and most used)
    - "Fix Url Links Redirect" (the only Redirect Remover/Cleaner for Chrome)
    - "Open in This Tab" (adds menu to do so, and makes most links do so)

    As for something to force allowing right click, I cannot find an extension that works well for that, but whenever I need that I just disable javascript (which Chrome nicely remembers per site too if like).

    Cheers
