Privoxy is based on Internet Junkbuster (tm).
At present, Privoxy is known to run on Windows(95, 98, ME, 2000, XP), Linux (Red Hat, SuSE, Debian, Conectiva, Gentoo), Mac OSX, OS/2, AmigaOS, BeOS, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Solaris, and many more flavors of Unix.
In addition to the traditional features of Internet Junkbuster, such as ad and banner blocking, cookie management/protection, and HTTP header manipulation, Privoxy adds many enhancements, and new features in the same vein.
Modularized configuration that allows for standard settings and user settings to reside in separate files, so that installing updated actions files won't overwrite individual user settings.
HTTP/1.1 compliant (but not all optional 1.1 features are supported).
Support for Perl Compatible Regular Expressions in the configuration files, and generally a more sophisticated and flexible configuration syntax over previous versions.
Improved cookie management features (e.g. session based cookies).
Bypass many click-tracking scripts (avoids script redirection).
Multi-threaded (POSIX and native threads).
User-customizable HTML templates for all proxy-generated pages (e.g. "blocked" page).
Auto-detection and re-reading of config file changes.
Improved signal handling, and a true daemon mode (Unix).
Every feature now controllable on a per-site or per-location basis, configuration more powerful and versatile over-all.
Many smaller new features added, limitations and bugs removed, and security holes fixed.
