Privoxy is a web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for protecting privacy, modifying web page content, managing cookies, controlling access, and removing ads, banners, pop-ups and other obnoxious Internet junk.
Privoxy has a very flexible configuration and can be customized to suit individual needs and tastes. Privoxy has application for both stand-alone systems and multi-user networks.
Privoxy is based on Internet Junkbuster.
Here are some key features of "Privoxy":
Integrated browser based configuration and control utility at http://config.privoxy.org/ (shortcut: http://p.p/). Browser-based tracing of rule and filter effects. Remote toggling.
Modularized configuration that allows for standard settings and user settings to reside in separate files, so that installing updated actions files won't overwrite individual user settings.
HTTP/1.1 compliant (but not all optional 1.1 features are supported).
Support for Perl Compatible Regular Expressions in the configuration files, and generally a more sophisticated and flexible configuration syntax over previous versions.
Improved cookie management features (e.g. session based cookies).
Bypass many click-tracking scripts (avoids script redirection).
Multi-threaded (POSIX and native threads).
User-customizable HTML templates for all proxy-generated pages (e.g. "blocked" page).
Auto-detection and re-reading of config file changes.
Improved signal handling, and a true daemon mode (Unix).
Every feature now controllable on a per-site or per-location basis, configuration more powerful and versatile over-all.
Many smaller new features added, limitations and bugs removed, and security holes fixed.
