Jor's config set
« on: March 28, 2002, 02:52:22 PM »
This set has been replaced with a newer version, see below in this thread. Last update 19-08-2002



The subforum still holds the old version described in this first post.


--------------------------------------------


Hey guys,

I've just uploaded a new version of my config set. Get it here:
http://members.outpost10f.com/~jor/files/Prox.zip (38kb)

My filterset includes filters from Paul's page (http://www.geocities.com/u82011729/prox/, some modified, some left unaltered, a few of the default filters, and some of my own devising.

This filterset replaces all earlier versions.

Some remarks about the filters themselves:

-I have placed them in "sections", this is mainly for my own use (I like to debug my filterset a lot), you may remove these if you want.

-The user agent filters I use are the five "User Agent:" Header filters, the five "Cloak UA in JS" filters, and the five ua-xx.js files in the HTML folder. The "default" filter sets your browser to identify itself as Opera, the other filters are for dumb sites (sites that use javascript to lock out certain browsers, listed in the "DumbSites" blocklist), and only select ONE of these. For example, iff you select IE in the header section, also select IE in the "Cloak UA in JS" filter section. If you choose Mozilla, select Mozilla in both sections.

-I use a pretty intensive Javascript blocking method -- nearly all functions are disabled, or altered. Refer to Paul's page for more info. My changes from his filters include a block for plugin snooping, and a change in the way pop-up filters are handled. (Thanks for the help Paul!)

-All the ad filters use Paul's blocklists. Some of my entries have been added.

-By default I disable Flash. All sites where I allow Flash are in the "AllowFlash" blocklist. If you don't like this, disable the "Convert Flash animations to links" filter.

-The "Image links to Inline (Not for normal use!)" filter will turn <b>all</b> image links to inline images -- I suggest you only activate it on image galleries (Which is what I wrote it for). Normal browsing with this filter will result in broken navigation on most sites.

Any further questions, feel free to ask.

Hi "Jor",
        Good to hear from you! And thanks for sharing your Up-dated config.files. However, I can't get to them, because of my location. I keep getting:  
         "File Not Found  The requested URL was not found on this server".


Do you think that you might up-load them to the Sub-Forum? I would really like to try them out and see your improvements.

 Thanks to you, I now use Opera as my Default Browser, too.
I hope that you have a Great and Wonderful Day, My FRIEND!
"Jak"

Hi,
I changed it to 50kb. Is that enough?

My config can now also be downloaded from the subforum.

Cheers

Edited by Arne  on 1. April 2002 since the zip file was corrupted. Now it is OK.

Hi Jor,

The file in the subforum seems to be broken, at least it is during my download tries.

I also have a question concerning cloaking of javascript variables (navigator.userAgent, etc):
Do you see a way to make this work for IE as well?

Thanks Arne

sidki3003: I'm not completely sure how MSIE identifies itself, if you block ActiveX and Java however, using my user agent filters should fool almost every website.

Since the ua-xx.js files are only using very simple ecmascript, I think MSIE should be able to deal with them. An easy way to check this is to load the filters in Prox, and then go to any UA report page with MSIE and Prox -- it should identify itself as Opera (if you leave my config intact)

Unfortunately IE cannot be fooled that way.
Most probably below (IE-)Javascript variables are read-only:

navigator.appName: Microsoft Internet Explorer
navigator.appCodeName: Mozilla
navigator.browserLanguage: en-us
navigator.systemLanguage: en-us
navigator.platform: Win32
navigator.appVersion: 4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)
navigator userAgent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)  

edit: here is a JS test page

You're right, MSIE seems to ignore the js files

Afraid you'll have to edit the UA string in the registry to alter MSIE's UA.

New set uploaded:

Filesize is now 45'065b, and can be grabbed  here (45kb, case-sensitive).

Changes:
-all redundant files stripped (I think)
-link styling filter and CSS included, and many filters changed to make use of this,
-hpguru's cool new killed.html included,
-tweaks to other filters
-comment included with zipfile

If you want to change the link colours, edit the top section of Prox.css -- before the commented line. See this topic for more info on this trick.

Many thanks to Paul Grupe for his excellent filters, and to the posters at this forum for their continued support

Yet another new set.

I've uploaded two different files now:

Prox.zip (89'408b) contains all files needed, if you unzip this over a Proxomitron install you will have my complete config, with all textures, all javascript and other html folder files, my version of hpguru's new killed.html, and all needed blocklists (this really is the smallest version I could make it!

Prox-s.zip (26'984b) is a smaller version, containing only default.cfg, Prox.css, and the javascript files needed -- all blocklists will have to be downloaded from Paul's page or you'll have to make sure you use those from your own set.

If anyone would like another version, just ask.


Changes in this set:
-$STOP() added to a few filters,
-$NEST(<tag,</tag>) used instead of <tags*/tag> (much faster),
-other updated/altered filters,
-last not needed filters & files removed.

But see further below.

Just uploaded a newer version, it's a clean rip from my current config, and therefore the link styling is in prox.css, not in an external file.

I'll split it in prox.zip and prox-s.zip later, if I find the time -- for now these will remain on-line as well.

All needed files are included in this archive.
