"Someone directs a request for your content through their server, where they add material to it that you may or may not approve of, without asking your permission. They then return this *modified* material to the requester."
Is this really what happens? This seems like it would work with either Netscape or IE, thus not requiring a local proxy for Netscape.
Perhaps what happens is:
a) User fetches a page, which is intercepted by the plug in or proxy.
b) A plug-in or local proxy server submits the fetched URL to ThirdVoice, which returns *just* the associated comment data. The TV user's machine simply asks 'what are the comments for this URL?'.
c) The plug-in or local proxy concatenates the original HTML with the ThirdVoice data.
d) The web browser receives the concatenated HTML, and displays it.
In this scenario, ThirdVoice would *not* be modifying the web page. The modification would happen entirely on the user's machine.
