BannerFilter is a redirect script for the Squid proxy server that blocks advertising banners on the Web and automatically closes popup windows. It also blocks advertising frames on a few sites. Since the banners are not downloaded at all, it speeds up your Internet connection. There's also a script that can automatically download updates files off the Web and notify you when a new version is available.
