Blocking JS with Privoxy

How can I block Javascript with Privoxy? I'm pretty sure I need to use a filter, but +filter{*.js} and +filter{*javascript*} didn't work.

I'm trying to block JS by default and then whitelist scripts. I don't want to use add-ons.

Edit: +filter{whatever} is just the filter label; I see now that I have to define the filtering rule separately (using regular expressions) from the label. My problem is that I'm not sure what the rule should be. The *.js and *javascript* were guesses about the rule.

Just found their mailing list, so I guess that's where I'll get my answer.

When i want to save clean html page

in the filter file:

Code: Select all

FILTER: clean-of-script Remove all script tag
then in the action file:
{ +filter{clean-of-script} }

To add an additional site to the block list easily, first open the user.action file.
$ sudo gedit /etc/privoxy/user.action
You're going to make a backup, aren't you! Yes, good idea! Do that! Give yourself a pat on the back.
Read the readme.
