With its comprehensive access controls, Squid stands out as a superb server accelerator.

squid : Optimising Web Delivery


Squid prides itself as one of the most seasoned content accelerators used globally by numerous websites to mitigate their server loads. Integrating an accelerator in front of an existing website is often a straightforward task with Squid, that results in immediate benefits.

Squid goes beyond just improving user speeds by optimizing TCP flows – it elevates user experience even without caching! It's easy to configure servers to tackle the broad spectrum of latitudes on the internet, an aspect that most desktop environments aren't adjusted for.
