1.7.4 Junkbuster

Junkbuster is a simple non-caching web proxy designed to remove banner ads and cookies. It was the main model for WWWOFFLE's (and therefore Polipo's) header and ad-removing features.

Junkbuster's HTTP support is very simple (some would say broken): it doesn't do persistent connections, and it breaks horribly if the client tries pipelining. Junkbuster is no longer being maintained, and has evolved into Privoxy.
