Some clients will let you specify configuration based on the url. For example
with firefox, you could create a configuration file which contains:
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
// proxy to localhost port 8118
return "PROXY 127.0.0.1:8118';
// default - no proxy
Then in Firefox, go to preferences / general and in the Connection settings,
set "Automatic proxy configuration URL" to "file://[path to your config
file]". I use a proxy configuration file, but I haven't tested this with
Or you can do it the other way, have a list of domains that it is ok to use
directly, and have everything else go through the privoxy proxy. Some
examples of ways to test, not recommendations:
if( dnsDomainIs(host, '.freshmeat.net')
|| dnsDomainIs(host, 'sourceforge.net') // pick up "http://sourceforge.net"
|| dnsDomainIs(host, '.sourceforge.net') // for "http://*.sourceforge.net"
|| (host == '127.0.0.1')
|| (url.substring(0,6) == "https:")
