    Default Pop-up blocker in Safari

    Prior to the recent Safari update, there was an option *Command+Shift+K* that allowed users to quickly enable/disable pop-up windows. Now this option has been removed and thrown in directly under preferences under the securities tab with no direct, immediate access to it.

    Does anyone know if there is an easy 'quick enable/disable' for Safari after this update because my University website and Work portal both require pop-up windows to open but its such a hassle going in and checking/unchecking boxes each and every time I want to go on those websites.

    Is there atleast a way to allow certain websites to be able to launch pop-up windows while blocking all others??

    Get the Safari Extension AdBlock...menu Safari>> Safari Extensions - install from there. You can set it to block all ads and pop-ups... it puts an icon in the toolbar that you can easily use to add a certain page, or domain to an exception list to allow pop-ups, etc. on specific pages/domains.
