squid_redirect uses a list of patterns to zap annoying ad banners from Web pages, inserting a placeholder image. It lives in a Web proxy and so requires no special browser facilities. It's readily customizable, small, fast, and easy to install. (In Debian/Ubuntu, this program is named "adzapper".)

Release Notes: Many patterns were updated since the last public release.
Release Notes: A bunch of updates were made, including some overzap fixes.
Release Notes: A security fix was made for pathological behavior for certain URLs. A new ad class was added for text-only ads, which are off by default.
Release Notes: This release features a new "stand-alone" mode not needing a Squid or Apache proxy, which is helpful on very small boxes but not optimal if you have the resources for a squid. There is new Apache2 proxy mode support, a new "URL?NOZAP" handler to bypass the zapper by hand from the browser for a single URL, and the usual collection of pattern updates.
Release Notes: This release adds rewrite rules, allowing things like getting the "printer friendly" version of a Web page; several news sites are set up for this, though that pattern class is off by default. There's also the usual large number of rule additions.
