Hello TPFC friends
I would like to post "Proxomitron" webfiltering proxy in this forum.
Here's a partial list of what the Proxomitron can do "out of the box"
(not that it was ever in a box mind you)

Stop windows that pop-up, pop-under, or pop-over
Stop those un-closable endless banner chains
Stop pop-up JavaScript message boxes
Remove web-branding and other scripts tacked on by "free" web providers.
Convert most ads and banner pictures into simple text links
Freeze all animated gifs
Make blinking text appear as bold instead
Remove slow web counters
Stop web pages from "auto-refreshing"
Prevent pages from changing fonts
Get rid of or replace web page background images
Protect against getting "trapped" inside someone else's frames!
Make all frames resizable
Close top or bottom frame banner windows
Protect against getting "trapped" inside someone else's frames!
Make background MIDI songs play only when you choose.
Remove status bar scroll-texts
Remove "dynamic" HTML from pages
Disguise your browser's identity and version from JavaScripts
Remove style sheets
Un-hide URLs when the mouse is over a link
Disable frames or tables altogether
Change or delete cookies
Change your browser's user-agent and other identifying fields
Hide where you've been previously from inquisitive web servers
and, as they say, much, much more.
You'll need to change your browsers proxy settings before it'll do anything besides look vaguely disorienting. This is pretty easy to do though - read the documentation that's included with the download.
I hope this doesn't conflict with your vision of portability?

The default configuration file (in the application folder) works great for filtering ads etc, but you can choose from other configuration files or edit them from the program to satisfy your needs.

Online help:

Download the zip package. There are two versions. The differences between these versions can be read here:

For those interested: someone managed to decompile Proxomitron completely, analyse and rebuild it, dubbed Proxomitron Reborn
More information and downloads here: (test reports and suggestions welcomed it seems)
