I've uploaded a (slightly) better explanation of using Rev as a proxy /
firewall / filter / web integrator at

With (rough and ready) sample downloads.

I may be way off the mark here, but would a process as below help ?

I've used Rev as a Browser/Net go between to screen 'unsuitable' sites.
i) Use Rev as a local web server application on say port 8181
ii) Rev launches a local page on your browser say index.html:8181
iii) Any links on this page could be directed to
(I beleive is always the local machine)
iv) This is then trapped by your local 'Rev Web Server' for processing
v) Rev can act on this, send and receive info to/from the web, alter it and
pass it to the local web browser.

In brief       (browser -> revserv) -> web
               web -> (revserv -> browser)

Have I explained this well enough ?
