BFilter

BFilter is a smart filtering HTTP proxy. Its primary purpose is removing banner ads. Unlike the majority of similar tools, it doesn't rely on a list of blocked URLs, but instead parses HTML on the fly, and detects ads using a set of heuristic rules. BFilter has a built-in Javascript engine that detects js-generated ads.
