Proxomitron is cool. I wrote my first useful Proxomitron filter today.
Can you guess what it does?
Scope: *.palmgear.com/index.cfm
Byte Limit: 1024
Matching Expression: <input\1Download Trial as a Guest
Replacement Text: <input\1Download Trial as a Guest" id="autoclickme

Scope: *.palmgear.com/index.cfm
Byte Limit: 4096
Matching Expression: <end>
Replacement Text: \r\n<!--//--><script>document.getElementById('autoclickme').click();</script>

Re: Proxomitron vs. Privoxy

I used to use junkbuster, then I graduated to Guidescope, its larger-scale, community-based version. Lately it had been seeming slower, and finally I jumped ship.

I started using Proxomitron because I want to see the web through me-colored glasses, and I'd say mess up people's pixel-perfect layouts by deleting things muhahaha, but really that isn't the style anymore, things just fall out gracefully.

I'm happy at the moment with firefox's adbuster extension and Proxomitron. I figure I'm good for another year or so with that combo.

Privoxy is good for doing what I used to use Guidescope for, I might try it again. But what I really miss is the driver-level locked-down firewalls I used to have on windows 98. There are probably things like it available for XP and stable enough now, but they're all these huge suites and full of things that can go wrong.

Anyway, hold the phone. I may have found something EVEN BETTER than the filtering of Proxomitron. Watch this space....
