Content filtering HTTP proxy

Foxy has all the features common to web filtering software but it goes the extra mile. For example, it's easy to block JavaScript, but it completely breaks many sites that use scripts in all their links. Unlike other web filters, in many cases Foxy can convert scripted links to regular links when blocking JavaScript, which preserves functionality of many de-scripted web sites.

Can you write simple programs in C, Perl, awk, or anything else? Have you ever thought about how nice it would be if some webpages could be passed through a filtering program or script of your own before your browser sees them?

Foxy will help you rewrite the web. The choice of the programming language is yours. The rule is simple: your program reads data from its standard input and writes it (potentially modified) to its standards output. Then Foxy feeds the result to your browser.
