Do you request hard data from "the rest", too? If so, Squid is already
the only survivor of the competition :-)

I fail to see how this can depend on the software used. It depends on the
pattern of use (i.e. your users), on the amount of hard disk, on the
policies you choose for expiring, on the education/force you exerced over
your users, etc.

It depends also on the situation of your cache in a hierarchy. accepts only clients which are themselves regional caches. So, it treats only "difficult" demands ( and are already cached at a lower level).
