I would like to encourage developers to make for linux a webfilter like K9 web protection which would be powered by bluecoat database. I should be as powerful as the windows version.

  • final product should be free of charge for users, yet donation will be possible
  • developper(s) may have to sign an agreement with Bluecoat to get the API to their database
  • real time monitoring, real time email alert would a plus (currently not available on mswindows)

Another feature that I would like to see is emailed logs of usage. Maybe just blocked sites so the admin can keep an eye on false positives, as well as where the users are going.
