An personal information collection website which rewards with a trickle of money.

I found surveys which were broken, offers which were suspect, items which wanted my credit card information or to install random software. Overall, the hype that others give this website makes me think less of humanity.

After this glance, I expect I'll be getting a lot of junk mail. Sigh.

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.

I experimented with cliget during my replacing web browser components project. I was interested in replacing Greasemonkey and Stylish, Adblock (now I use Adblock Latitude), Change Referer Button, etc. While I did get it working, I didn't stick with it.
