Pro-Active Webfilter

PAW (pro-active Web filter) is a filtering HTTP proxy based on the Brazil Framework. Because the Brazil Framework and PAW are written in Java, the software is highly portable. PAW allows for easy plugin of Handlers (to filter outgoing requests) and Filters (to filter incoming data), and a GUI for end users. All the configuration files are in XML, and thus easy to modify (even without the GUI). It's aim is to provide an easy to use interface for end users and to be easily extendable by developers.
