i remember having this problem since forever. i think it's limited to
html's table construct: when you have a table, netscape (that's what i used
to test this) does not display anything until it "has" the whole table. but
when using the same browser without squid, the data would show from the
beginning of the transfer. i remember it was pretty evident while surfing
the old site, and making a search that would return a lot (>200)
of themes... when doing that on my T1 the server would show nothing for 5~10
seconds, and then the whole page would appear, very fast. without using
squid, like 20~30 themes would show per second, starting at second 1. so on
the T1 the wait would be of 5~10 seconds (not much), but for my dial-up
customers, using the proxy would mean staring at netscape for 5+ minutes
without seeing anything (when doing the same search at, and then
getting everything very fast.
