1. Cross-compile privoxy and set it up
2. Add the rules (to global.actions): "{+filter{all-popups}}"
3. In the config, make it forward all requests to amazon (fints-g7g.amazon.com:80)
4. In /opt/amazon/config/ServerConfig.conf, make the kindle use localhost:8118 as the proxy instead of fints-g7g.amazon.com.

It works, but I have no idea how it impacts battery life and/or performance. (Privoxy is designed to be small, so it shouldn't be that bad). Also, you get to block ads as an added bonus.
I have privoxy running on the kindle (works fine with lynx) but I cannot figure out how to modify ServerConfig.conf. I assume the fints proxy is for 3G only and is ignored for WiFi. How to specify the proxy so that it works with WiFi? And what exactly to change for 3G? I'm on 3.1.
