Forgot to mention... another thing you may want to either drop or only have in an advanced config, is the ad blocking. To do that well requires constant updates so as not to break websites all over the place. (see uBlock Origin and similar) You can put in a compromise in the form of simply allowing host blocking. I myself just manually add hosts to block from various text list sources and put that in one of the ptext files. The ad blocking in Proxomitron was a good idea back when the development was active... not so much these days. It's better to let ads through than to have to add website exceptions all the time and they get through anyways cause of the exception.

Most people will be running this along side a full ad blocker anyways. (and it's best not to have multiple ones going)

I'd concentrate on making a default set about safety. Some ads could be blocked if they are the more 'tracking' type perhaps, but otherwise let users handle that with host/block lists additions or the use of other software. Most people are likely not going to use Proxomitron for ad blocking when the before mentioned one above and others are super popular and already available. (and receive constant updates)

In fact, if you want to make even the hosts blocking easier, you could do it how uBlock does some of its stuff and link to the source block lists for Proxomitron to read and update itself with. (optional of course, some users prefer manual updates)

I'll shutup for real now. lol
