Internet Junkbuster Proxy with zlib compression support

This is a port of The Internet Junkbuster Proxy(TM). An excelent way to enhance your privacy while browsing the web. And it also happens to do a great job of filtering out all those annoying banner ads! This modified version allows one to specify appearance of blocked GIFs. It can automatically compress text/html and text/plain documents for clients which support Accept-Encoding: gzip (e.g. Netscape 4.7, Internet Explorer 5, Lynx 2.8.3) to save downstream modem/network bandwidth. It uses the zlib compression library to perform on-the-fly compression of HTML documents.
