    Need some opinions on the above three. I have been using Proxomitron since dirt but its development has halted at 4.5 some time ago. I considering switching to one of the two alternatives above.

    If someone knows of another app that performs the same functions, plz let me know.


    Ciao and thanks,

    Which functions are most important to you? I considered Admuncher for a bit, but was convinced not to use it, so I went with Proxo and I'm still using it.

    The fact Proxo's development has stopped should not be a reason to change products.

    Proxomitron is still fully capable and functional and will be until HTML is no longer in use (and beyond? but you see my point) :)

    If you move to Adsubtract or Admucher your going to loose a lot of functionality. You cant really compare Proxo to either of these products.

    The best alternative to Proxo is Prixoxy.

    I've been using admuncher since version 4 and have nothing but the highest recommendations for it.

    There is a site that compares alot of the ad and popup stoppers on the market and admuncher is ranked number one in its latest versions.

    Having never used proxomitron I cant judge how good or bad it is, however I can tell you that admuncher is the best you can get for single pc ad and popup stopping - you can add your own rules and stuff to it and I belive the next release will have a re-written and more powerful filtering engine.

    In the end all I can say is try out all the app's you're considering and stick with hte one you like most.
