WebWasher is a proxy server application that sits between your Web browser an the Web to filter out undesirable content that you specify, including ads, animations, scripts and more. It is free for home and educational users.
"Does what you claim with no fuss, other than getting the filters in the first couple of hours of use (as with iCab, say) If you are comfortable using iCab, this may be redundant. But if you are switching to browsers from time to time with less cookie control, this is great to have. The authors, too, are very responsive to suggestons. Simple as can be to use; works great up through OS 9.1; haven't tried it on OS X yet, but am about to do so, given how flakey iCab is on OS 10.0.4."

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.
Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.
No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
