Popups? They are making Trip Advisor Hard to Navigate.

I wish Trip Advisor would not have added all these popups. This is a 1990s trick.

The popups are getting worse. My computer is jumping pages when I go on Trip Advisor tonight. I am afraid I am going to have to delete trip advisor pretty soon if this keeps up. It works great on everything except TA. Now I have to clean my computer and tweek all the adjustments to keep it from crashing. I wish TA would try to help. I sent them a message with no response.

I use Chrome and I do not see any popups at all. In the settings there is one setting: "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups (recommended)" to turn on. You don't need to install anything else.

Firefox is bloatware with memory leaks much as IE was a few years ago. However, lots of people like it. It is not for me..

Chrome is where it's at. I can keep 20 tabs open at a time with no performance problems. Can't say that for IE or Firefox.

My husband has a pc and switched to Chrome about a year ago. He had so many issues with the other ones he used. His friends recommended it. Loves it. No problems with anything. Smooth sailing.....runs his business on it. I have a MAC and use Firefox (on my computer) and Safari on my iPad. It works just as smooth for me. No pop ups and I can keep lots of tabs open at once.

I had a hard time switching over to Firefox so I am trying chrome. Just got done with my privacy settings. I will let you know how it works.

I had tried chrome a year ago and had a lot of problems with it. I hope they have fixed their problems.

Thanks for the help everybody.

Funman .... do a review search of Chrome, and you'll find they have not. And especially so if you value some privacy with your internet browsing, and the like.

We have been running Mac's for the past few years ... and will stay with what Apple provides ...

I read this thread, because I was wondering what it was about.

I have never had any pop-ups on tripadvisor. I use Chrome and I've never had any problems with it. The computer techies use it and recommend it. I used Firefox for awhile, but did have issues with it not being compatible with so many things I used, so it was frustrating. IE was just a bad joke...

Funman, are you sure you didn't get some cheese in your key board. Or maybe it's just froze up because spring never wants to come to Wisconsin. I'm running IE and using Microsoft Essentials and have no problems with popups. I tried running Chrome, but couldn't do much of anything with it. Part of it was resistance to change. I guess I'm just an old dinosaur. Good luck.

tansandy,,,I got out my Green Bay Packer jearsy and put it on. And you are right, I found some Wisconsin cheese in my keyboard.. I put in on my Johnsonville Brat and washed it down with some Milwaukee beer while watching the Brewers play ball.

No more pop ups.
