compressing HTTP proxy server
DescriptionZiproxy is a forwarding, non-caching and compressing HTTP proxy server. Basically it squeezes images by converting them to lower quality JPEGs and compresses (gzip) HTML and other text-like data. It also provides other features such as: HTML/JS/CSS optimization, preemptive hostname resolution, transparent proxying, IP ToS marking (QoS), Ad-Blocker, detailed logging and more. Ziproxy may be installed in a number of different ways. Most common setup modes:
1) As a remote proxy (by far, the most commonly used setup)
Ziproxy accesses the remote www servers through a fast link,
compresses the data, then send it to the client through a slow link.
In such setups there's no additional software required by the client,
Ziproxy acts much as a common network proxy.
2) As a local and remote proxy
Similar to setup #1, except that the client also runs its instance of
Ziproxy. Although Ziproxy does not require a Ziproxy-specific client,
there are circumstances where is desired to run Ziproxy-as-a-client:
* Client does not support JPEG 2000.
* Client supports JPEG 2000 but it is buggy and/or slow.
* Client does not support gzip.
* Need to support both JPEG 2000 and standard JPEG at the same proxy.
