Linux support, or work around

Postby broman.martin » Wed Oct 02, 2013 5:13 pm

I have recently switched from windows to a linux based OS and want to know if work on linux is something for the future, or something you are working on at the moment?

Also, in adition I would like to know if I can install my ad-muncher on a windows computer and have all my BROWSER based internet filtered through the windows maching WITH ad muncher so that I get the full OR semi advantage of ad-muncher on my linux based computer?

Currently I am using adblock edge, and even on the first day of using it I could feel how terrible it is :( there just is no software that even can come close to what ad muncher gives us.
With that in regard I will most probably switch back to windows, only so I can use ad muncher for my internet. Second best option would be to have my micro laptop run ad muncher and filter my linux computers webbrowsers internet.

I love ad muncher! And I will even use a crapy OS as windows just so I can get the benifits of ad muncher! Only time can tell :mrgreen: Please make me the happiest user of internet ;D Linux + ad muncher and I would hit nirvana!! Leave me with windows and ad muncher, and I'll just reach perfection.

The main reason for the 5.x rewrite was to do away with all the Windows specific code that Ad Muncher was based on.

once it's finished it will be a fairly simple matter to port to other operating systems.

And yes you can install a proxy and have Ad Muncher filter that proxy and have your linux machine connect to that proxy.
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.
