Peter the Impatient Hippo? I've used privoxy for several years on both Windows and Linux boxes. Yes, it does require some tweaking if you're not happy with the defaults. Regarding redirects, what privoxy does is truncate, e.g., http://some.place/some_script?http://some.where-else bypassing http://some.place/some_script? and going directly to http://some.where-else This can be reconfigured on a per site basis if you don't like the defaults. I don't recall ever seeing a warning, however. Privoxy works silently in the background without throwing up a lot of eye candy when it's doing it's job. > I have to idea about google's > -- -Rinaldi- Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined. -- Samuel Goldwyn _______________________________________________ support-seamonkey mailing list email@example.com https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/support-seamonkey
