A user configurable list, ready for sharing, of categories the user don't want to see ever. Allowing search engines, facebook, etc. to use this information, that I really want they know, for filtering purposes, we can achieve a better browsing experience, or at least, a non disgusting one.

       Like AdBlock but with extra categories for non-advert things to block?

       How do you know this isn't already implemented? For example, perhaps your browser automatically filters out things like

       Is it words, sentences, bad spelling, concepts, ideas, or pictures, images, typography, bad kerning, graphics, video, diagrams or sounds? Maybe there should be a slider. For example, one could set it to “absolutely no philosophy to appear on this browser” all the way up to “absolutely no philosophy to appear on this browser, at all”.

       You have my vote if you can convey this idea via lyrics to a country song in the Creedence mode. Chorus "I don't want to see things like that". sweet Bridge: things you would like to see. I can go ahead and imagine the music if your lyrics have intrinsic rhythm.

       Yes, a personal censor. If you set it to disinclude incorrect grammar and spelling your surfing would be somewhat limited.

       If I write such a song [bungston], you could be my artist manager

       // “absolutely no philosophy to appear on this browser, at all” //   

       That assumes that you and your browser share a consensus view on what constitutes "philosophy" .... which is difficult to verify objectively.

       Do you see dead people then try the paranormal blocker it stops all the crazy aliens, demons and all sorts of zany things that go bump in the night. Using special red tape and aluminum foil guaranteed to work or your 4.95 back.

       P sure I could get bungston a booking at the Grand ol Opry. The one in Glasgow, mind.

       I've seen dead people, it's overrated.   

       I guess working as a pathologist, it's a common occupational hazard...

       //A user configurable list...of categories//

Well I'm fairly certain that such software exists already. At least, I get a fairly rude message in my workplace browser about 'non-standard religions' whenever I try to visit any Satanism websites. Westboro Baptist seems OK though!

True, this isn't quite what you are describing but it does the same job.

Of course the 'configurable' bit is the nub of the issue. How do you define a category? How do you know if a website fits your definition? etc.

       //How do you define a category?// other:general   

       Anyway, the search engines already does this for targeted advertising. Would be like to ask them: please use this list to _not_ show things like a,b,c. What [pocmloc] said.
