specifications

Yet Another Filter Proxy project is a preforking, banner filtering, content scanning Perl proxy.

Yet Another Filter Proxy is a proxy to filter out advertising banners and malicious script code from web sites. It is written in Perl and based on an example by Randal L. Schwartz.

For performance reasons it uses preforking to spawn several processes of itself (like Apache does).

Unlike other available proxies (such as Junkbuster), it does blocking by Perl regular expressions on the site content, which allows you to block JavaScript and popups, in addition to normal ads.
