I've been a happy Privoxy user for quite some time now. I can really recommend it to anybody who wants to get rid of all the nasty stuff floating around on the web these days. From the Privoxy homepage:
Privoxy is a web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for protecting privacy, modifying web page content, managing cookies, controlling access, and removing ads, banners, pop-ups and other obnoxious Internet junk.
The most useful feature for me is that it automatically removes almost all of those ugly flash-based ad banners.
My todo list:
OMFG! Only yesterday I said there's no really nice Flash website out there. I might have to reconsider.

The annual report from usability expert Jakob Nielsen:
I agree with all of them, especially number 3 (Flash). I'm starting to like most of the AJAX sites popping up around me, but I have yet to find a Flash site which I really like.

Some of you might not know this site. Over at angryalien.com, there's a bunch of flash movies, all named "INSERT-MOVIE-TITLE-HERE in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies", e.g. The Exorcist in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies. All of them are absolutely hilarious...
Next up (Thursday, July 21, 2005): The Rocky Horror Picture Show in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies.
I'm looking forward to this one...
