Editors' Review

Rarely do you find a freeware browser privacy tool this effective, but novices should steer clear. Proxomitron's default interface includes one of the ugliest texture sets we've seen, but it's simple to disable. The dialog box is small but tab rich, the settings are too numerous to list. You better know HTTP settings, Web header codes, proxy types, encoding, MIME, and dozens of other settings and choices. With this application, it is easier to break your browser than improve it.

However, advanced users with a taste for improved browser control and stronger privacy settings will find this freeware delicious. Easily filter almost any header information both into and out of your browser. Control data entering your browser from any Web site. With a few option clicks, stop select banners from loading, stop JavaScript, stop Flash, and stop many other typical Web site features. Configuration is not for the squeamish. There is a lot to do, but fortunately, Proxomitron's default settings will fit most users. You can easily save configurations and load settings from other users.

Aside from the incredibly unattractive background, we found nothing we disliked about this tool. Most users will find this utility a snap to install and enable in their browser. Advanced users will enjoy the time spent tweaking settings to their satisfaction. Everyone who uses this freeware will be happy with the results.
