Hey guys & gals,
I just configured this at my work machine (win2k) so that I can browse AO with out worrying about the boss man look at my screen and see all the pretty colors… Of course I prolly shouldn’t hang out on AO this much
I simply installed the “proximitron”
Along with many other features I use the proximitron to weed out “color” and “img” HTML tags making all of the sites I visit look like nothing more than boring documents…
So, what the heck is a Proxomitron anyway?
Have you ever wished you could turn off some of those fancy new HTML features your web browser supports? Are you tired of pages filled to the brim with blinking banners, pop-up windows, and other such aggravations?
They rules are quite simple to implement… it uses a simple replace function (with added syntax for more complicated matching)
Again, the basic idea to remove/replace unwanted data.
I’ve included a screen shot of what AO looks like with no color/img…
yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...

At first i was just gonna say "use mozilla" obviously for no pop-up's, but after i read your post i can see the other uses for this program.

For those that want really good instructions, I suggest Negative's tutorial on The Proxomitron:
