San Diego-based Bomis.Com delivered a new Web browser--called the Bomis Browser--that eliminates pop-up advertisements.

The browser maintains all the Java and JavaScript capabilities of modern browsers. The company is making it free for the download at its Web site.

"We anticipate a large public demand for this," said Bomis co-founder Jimmy Wales. "People absolutely hate these pop-up advertisements."

In addition, the Bomis Browser includes a feature that will allow people to anonymously and voluntarily choose to share their browsing history with Bomis.

"We're going to compile the data to come up with the most extensive data on what is popular on the Internet. We are additionally going to use the data to refine our search engine's capabilities to help us find good sites to include in the Bomis index," said Wales.

Bomis.com is a member built Web-index, in which people register themselves for free membership, receive a password, and then are able to build rings on subjects of interest to them.

The site claimed 1.4 million visitors in February.
