The accelerator is extremely useful here as i'm running squid as an
accelerator/proxy server. Squid is running on port 80 and my web server on
port 81.
I was running Cern as a proxy server before this on port 80 and when i
changed to squid it saved a lot of headaches with getting my users to change
their port in their configuration all the time.
Besides squid is doing a far better job than what Cern was. My main server
has never swapped yet under squid whereas with cern it was swapping every
couple of days!
