GREAT software never dies.. even when the developer himself does
(I miss JD5000, too)
there is an active, AVID community developing filter sets for proxomitron
[Bfilter is worth trying]
If you crave a spiffier interface and do not need SSL filtering try proximodo
God bless Scott R Lemmon!

The anybrowser sh11t blocker. Runs through WINE. Gentoo Dapper, Tiger: Platinum , Gold http://appdb.winehq.org/...=application&iId=39
Takes a while to learn the tools prx has. But noobz can still use. Be sure to download a current filterset.
How-to's? Filter syntax resembles regex. Prx also has builtin "commands" (like functions). Reread Scott's help html often.
Castlecops is down, but there's yahoo group and prxbx.com/forums, and google for some old pages with good info. Users who write filters tend to become specialists. :-)
Constantly hoping an oss team will consider a fresh rewrite of this unique app. Would like an easier config-interface. A full "IDE" would be nice.

Seeing as how there's not been a review of Proxomitron for nearly 4 years I thought I'd post one to say it still works, filters are still regularly updated and released, and it's still as effective and trouble free as ever. I highly recommend this over paid versions - still outstanding after all this time and the author is sadly missed.

I submitted several filters to Scott long time ago.
It is sad that he passed away.
I hope Scott's family would release the source code of Proxomitron so that this superb program can be maintained by the fans.
Privoxy is a good open source alternative to this program. However, the most recent version I tested 3.0.3, waits for the entire page to be downloaded before the filtering engine kicks in. This is not a good way to do it.
Proxomitron starts filtering without waiting for the entire page to be fully downloaded first.

I love this program, but the author is dead. :(
Does anyone know of a good alternative? Privoxy? Webwasher?
intelligent interweb searching will yeild the half dozen communities releasing fitler sets ;)
