As far as I know there are none (although there are some pretty good ones for Windows).

The only way I know of to get rid of the pop-ups is to use OmniWeb in Mac OS X.

I'm sure someone out there is working on something for Classic Mac OS. Good luck.

Webwasher works well.

Extremely effective at preventing pop ups. I use on and off it does not appear to be buggy.

For browsers in OS 9, try iCab. The latest release is pretty stable. It's a 10 minute download with 56k modem. Has filters for popups, consoles, etc. and can prevent servers from generally taking over your browser. Had it 7 months now, and use it for the bulk of my surfing. Give it a little extra memory and you'll probably have to just play with the features a while to get the hang of it.

here

or at downloads.com (Cnet)
