It should be possible to block all java, js and plugins like in a normal browser or in the noScript extension of firefox.

    If you want to do this you can use filters to replace instances of <script, <embed with something else, and add {+block +handle-as-empty-document} /.*\.js
    ...to user.actions, as well as exclusions for sites you want to allow.

    I'm not convinced how useful this would be to users, as it is disabling a lot of useful stuff on the Internet. However, if you want it maybe others do! A suggestion would be a section in the filters/actions that do this, disabled by default, that users can enable if they wish.

    The problem is using privoxy with tor, the use of js, java and plugins leak a lot of information about browser, even major of the standard info and reduce the anonimity so that is quite easy to track user in sites

    It should also be possible to search the old requests
    before filing new ones.
