looking for web program
« on: April 19, 2012, 04:53:55 AM »
hello!

there is an old program, very famous and very powerful (as said) that its developer died (I think) and it is no longer developed

it is about web filtering, blocking ads, etc, but its plugins and extensibility have made it famous

any hint?

thanks!

Proxomitron ?

Quote
The Author
Scott R. Lemmon originally developed the Proxomitron for his own use.  He then decided to release it to the public and made himself available to users via email and in several Proxomitron user-discussion groups.  His support, like his program, was always free.

With the release of Naoko 4.5, Scott discontinued all further development and support of his program and pulled the official home of Proxomitron off the Web.  We respected his decision to move on and wished him all the best -- which is, after all, what he consistently gave to us.

Sadly, one year later, Scott died -- but his brilliance of mind and spirit lives on.  Simply put, Proxomitron is a reflection of its creator:  To know Scott's program . . . is to know Scott Lemmon.

FireFox and Adblock plus, with filter set for your region, is what I use.
Dont know if it's better, but I'm sure it's a whole lot easier...

Add in Greasemonkey, (for the ability to modify web pages), and you've almost got a complete replacement for the filtering features Proxomitron provided.

Except one thing: Proxomition may act system wide.

We should not forget AdMuncher which has worked for me extremely smoothly and effectively.

Agreed.  I'm a huge fan and user of AdMuncher (six years now).

this is only about web filtering and altering web page appearance?

or it can also automate tasks in web pages?
