Did you know that filters can do cool things like speed up your network, block cookies, and stop those annoying ads? This article from Forbes outlines these points.
Web-filtering software has been available for nearly five years, but much of it has been either too consumer-oriented--designed simply to screen pornography, for example--or too technical for even moderately savvy PC users.

While there are some much debated privacy issues surrounding Web filters, a practical reason for using them is they accelerate the speed at which information is downloaded by blocking advertisements, animation, pop-up screens and background music. The less time computers take to sort through this kind of material, the more work employees can accomplish.
