Is there a way to quit Safari if a pop up occurs without clicking on the pop-up window? I was browsing earlier today (and I do have pop-ups blocked through Safari), and a pop up window came up saying to click ok to leave the page or click cancel to stay on the page. I didn't want to do either as I am reluctant to deal with any pop up window. I think on Windows you can click Alt-F4 to quit with a keyboard command. Is there such a command on OS X? I tried to quit in the dock, but that wouldn't quit Safari, and Force quit wasn't an option. Is there a workaround?

Also, I was scared about clicking okay that something might download in the background and install. I don't think this is possible with OS X unless I enter and admin password, but I was just curious. Is it possible for something to install in the background without my knowledge (such as a keylogger, spyware, etc.)?
