Description

The page at https://crypto.stanford.edu/flashproxy/options.html is not very helpful towards new flashproxy operators.

There are at least two modifications that we can do to make it more friendly to humans:
a) Add a visual indicator that flashproxy is proxying connections when users have opted in. For example, add a big "Flashproxy active" or "Flashproxy inactive" text underneath the "Yes"/"No" buttons.

b) People who don't know computers probably also don't know how flashproxy works or what a proxy is. Maybe the "Do you want your browser to act as a proxy?" text can be changed to something else.

Attached a revised patch with a few changes. The text is now white and the background colour changes. Slight wording changes too.

Looks nice! I guess it turns to red or something when "Proxy Disabled", right?
