Subject description: installing a Web proxy for your browsers
 

https://linoxide.com/linux-how-to/install-use-privoxy-ubuntu-16-04/

Privoxy is available in repositories for Debian and Ubuntu. This means you can install it from PPM and with APT.

Privoxy is a piece of software which acts as a non-caching web proxy. A web proxy is a service that web browsers can use instead of connecting to web servers directly.
Even though web browsers nowadays have built-in features similar to privoxy, the proxy is a good choice if you use multiple browsers, or have a LAN with multiple computers since Privoxy can run as a server application. This way all the configuration is in one place, and you don't have to maintain a similar configuration for possibly many browsers or users.
