Surf+ : Java Glossary
I have left this tombstone entry for historical interest.
Was a tool to get rid of pop-up windows in Internet Explorer. It did not work in
other browsers. You could control them domain by domain. Some porn sites in
particular like to cram your browser with hundreds of daughter windows. You otherwise
would have to shut down to get rid of them all. It also gave you domain by domain
control of cookies. It was free but they tempted you with advertising offers in the
form of phony links such as this one: death That is not
actually a link, but it will appear to be one if you have Surf+ installed. If you
click it, it will take you to a place to find out whether someone has died. If you
don’t have Surf+, nothing happens. It is a clever idea to show you only the
advertising links that might interest you and to trick you into browsing them.
