Raspberry Pi Ad blocking proxy installation using Privoxy from Chris Mobberley:
So I wanted to block adverts that always seemed to pop up whenever I visited a certain few websites. I decided to look in to what is available for the Raspberry Pi and use it as a proxy server that would filter all of my traffic for me.
The benefits of using a proxy server ad blocker over an in browser ad blocker is that the server does all the work for you and not your client (browser). This ensures that ads are removed much earlier than during the rendering phase of your browser and therefore results in quicker page loads, well that’s my theory anyway.
Step-by-step instructions here.
