Abstract

Recently, Internet privacy has become a growing concern among Internet users. These users should have a way to prevent unwanted content from being downloaded onto their computers. This project looks at one possible solution to this problem. The project team developed a completely user-defined whitelisting tool which prevents said content from being downloaded. This tool was tested subjectively and objectively across a number of different websites and was found to have a great impact on a user's browsing experience.
