An Open Source web filter and protector with multiple page content analysis mechanism
DansGuardian is an open source and award winning web content filtering tool that uses the Squid proxy cache application to do all the fetching.

The DansGuardian project filters the web using multiple methods, including URL and domain filtering, PICS filtering, content phrase filtering, MIME filtering, file extension filtering, as well as POST limiting.

Among some of its features, we can mention an advanced phrase weighting system, filter HTML and text web pages for obscene (sexual, violent, racial, etc.) content, ad blocker, block all IP based URLs, and much more.

DansGuardian is a platform-independent application that runs well under Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X, HP-UX, and Solaris operating systems.
