Proxomitron is a local HTTP web-filtering proxy. It contains a powerful text matching engine specially designed to re-write web pages on the fly. You can use one of the built-in filtering rules, modify them or even write your own. With Proxomitron, you can stop pop-up, pop-under or pop-over ad windows, convert ads/banners into simple text links, freeze animated GIFs, stop blinking text etc.

Note: The original author of Proxomitron has passed on, and the program is no longer being developed.

For those interested: someone managed to decompile Proxomitron completely, analyse and rebuild it, dubbed Proxomitron Reborn. More information in the forum thread https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1486

I've been using proxomitron since win95, more than 10 years now. Best ad/trash/online scam filter EVER. Best thing is, no matter what new exploit shows up.. all you need are a few lines of code to block it/modify it. This baby literally rewrites the web.

Works fine with Windows Vista
Use ie7 with ie7pro.
This makes it possible to quickly enable/disable the proxyserver with Ctrl+F9

There's nice patch for the latest version of Proxomitron located here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~vsetten/prox/ . It changes the interface slighly (I guess it's more readable that way) and furthermore improves the way program deals with rules.

I advise everyone to read what's written at the bottom of the aforementioned webpage. In the memory of Scott Lemmon, the original creator of Proxomitron.
