Publisher's Description

A free and open source proxy server with advanced capabilities:

Privoxy is a non-caching web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data and HTTP headers, controlling access, and removing ads and other obnoxious Internet junk. Privoxy has a flexible configuration and can be customized to suit individual needs and tastes. It has application for both stand-alone systems and multi-user networks.

Privoxy features and highlights:
  • Supports "Connection: keep-alive". Outgoing connections can be kept alive independently from the client
  • Supports IPv6, provided the operating system does so too, and the configure script detects it
  • Supports tagging which allows to change the behavior based on client and server headers
  • Can be run as an "intercepting" proxy, which obviates the need to configure browsers individually
  • Sophisticated actions and filters for manipulating both server and client headers.
  • Can be chained with other proxies
  • Integrated browser-based configuration and control utility
  • Web page filtering (text replacements, removes banners based on size, invisible "web-bugs" and HTML annoyances, etc.)
  • Modularized configuration that allows for standard settings and user settings to reside in separate files
  • Support for Perl Compatible Regular Expressions in the configuration files, and a more sophisticated and flexible configuration syntax
  • GIF de-animation
  • Bypass many click-tracking scripts (avoids script redirection)
  • User-customizable HTML templates for most proxy-generated pages (e.g. "blocked" page)
  • Auto-detection and re-reading of config file changes

Privoxy is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from anonymous proxy software without restrictions. Privoxy 3.0.26 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
