No, it currently isn't with the broad exception of FTP.

This is a configuration issue with your firewall/router or client settings
and not Squid. Squid doesn't directly proxy FTP. It merely converts FTP
directory listings into a browser friendly format. Most (all?) regular FTP
clients (Leech FTP, CuteFTP etc) simply cannot use Squid.
