Yahoo! Companion Toolbar now also has pop-up blocker

For Yahoo! users, it makes life much more convenient to use Yahoo! Companion toolbar. Yahoo now added the pop-up feature to it (similar to the Google toolbar).

http://companion.yahoo.com

One thing I like about the Yahoo! Companion toolbar is how it handles "Always Allow Pop-Ups" web sites. You can indicate in the toolbar menu which web sites you want to allow pop ups from, and you can see all the sites in a list (somthing Google doesn't do, AFAIK). You can also see a list of recently blocked pop-ups to see which one you want to keep.

What does? If you're referring to the Google toolbar showing a list of all the web sites that it is allowing pop ups from, how do you get to that?

Oh, and be sure to allow pop-ups from "www.dvdtalk.com" per your user agreement.

Oh it doesn't have a list. Whoops. But you CAN tell it to allow popups on a certain page. You can tell if they're allowed or not as the allow popups button will be depressed.
