"Squid is sufficiently ubiquitous, making it easy to get hold of
via your Linux distribution. As ever with FOSS, you can choose to
download the source, or even the development source if you're fond
of the bleeding edge, and roll your own. sudo apt-get install squid
will do the trick on Debian or Ubuntu.
"Another advantage of Squid's ubiquity and longevity is the
extensive documentation available, provided by the project itself
and the many notes and tutorials available online. Most problems
you might have, or setups you might want, have already been tried
out by someone else and their experiences recorded online, which is
incredibly useful for the busy or inexperienced admin."
