Privoxy is a Privacy-Enhancing Proxy. These two proxies can be chained to increase your Web Browser Security.

Privoxy is a Privacy Enhancing Non-Caching Web Proxy with Advanced Filtering Capabilities. You can chain Privoxy with Polipo. Privoxy can also be chained with Squid, which in turn can use a URL Filter Solution.
