Blocks unwanted banner ads and cookies

The Internet Junkbuster Proxy (TM) blocks unwanted banner ads and protects your privacy from cookies and other threats. It works as a proxy that stands between your browser and the Internet, checking every HTTP request for each resource (including graphics) against a blockfile of URLs before sending it over the Internet. It can be configured as a plain old non-caching, non-blocking proxy as well, and can be used with just about any browser. It also helps prevent the disclosure of other details that surfers often want kept private, such as information about the page clicked on, and their computer's software and hardware configuration. These features can be optionally disabled or altered.
