Default privoxy kinda slowish

Thank you both Sthu and John for your replies.

Can you tell me what version of privoxy you both are using in
debian/squeeze? There is the repository version (3.0.16), and then there
is the deb you can download from the privoxy sourceforge website (3.0.19).

None of them load sites reasonable well when set in cautious mode. I
also noticed, how version 3.0.19 in ubuntu/precise runs fast on the same
websites, even with filtering enabled.

It all points to miss-configuration on my part, or the package in
squeeze has a problem I don't know of.

Since it runs so well in ubuntu with plain default actions, I don't
understand what's wrong with the same defaults I use in squeeze.

I enabled the debug mode and checked for errors in
/var/log/privoxy/logfile , but that won't point me to a possible problem.

Any ideas what to look at when speed drops like that?

Good time of the day, Lou.

If I run privoxy with filtering disabled in the webinterface it still
feels a lot slower compared to surfing without a proxy at all.

Is this to be expected, and can speed improve with config adjustments?

I just use the default actions on debian/squezze, and no tor.

Unless You use TOR, it should be any slower even if You use filters.
