Privoxy is a non-caching web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data and HTTP headers, controlling access, and removing ads and other obnoxious Internet junk. Privoxy has a flexible configuration and can be customized to suit individual needs and tastes.

Current version support HTTPS-Inspection (experimentally) which allows privoxy to also filter content requested through HTTPS.

NOTE: This isn't doing anything without some additional interaction. See gitlab README.md on what and how.

Updates will preserve changes to the config in sailfish.action and config.sailfish. If you have changed them, check after an update and merge your changes from the *.rpmnew files.

 

BETA Feature (coming soon):

Extensive adblocking including Element Hiding through AdBlock lists and the adblock2privoxy tool. See the README, and the extra-lists-ab2p package.

Deprecation notice:

As the extra-lists package never produced very useful configurations, I will not be updating it. You can use the scripts from the package to generate your own if you like them.

Sorry for silly question, I don't mean it offending. What is good for to run proxy server on ordinary cell phone?

See the links for more information.
But basically, this is not a caching proxy but a filtering one. This means you can add all kinds of rules which can block or alter whatever web content is requested through the proxy.
On a phone this can be beneficial as it may save bandwidth, improve browsing performance and of course improve privacy. There are no guarantees for this though, it may also have the reverse effect depending on what you do with it.

It's literally right there in the description.

Nice app, thanks for the update!
Through the application, I did not see that 2 files!

Yeah sorry I thought I could split them up, turns out the templates are needed. The -2 version should work okay now.

Also I'm learning how openrepos does things, did not know that you need a seperate application for different RPMs to be made available.

Good job! I always ran Privoxy on the N900. Sailfish is so far behind that 10+ year old device in so many ways...
