    I think you mean algorithm, as opposed to language...

    A pop-up blocking program might do any number of things, but I would imagine that most of them would relate to the JavaScript window.open() function, since that is how most pop-ups are launched. They could filter incoming pages and strip that JavaScript out, or disable the function within the browser (if they act as a plugin).

    Having not written any pop-up blockers myself nor studied the source code to any existing ones, I can only guess as to how they work.
