compressing HTTP proxy server

Ziproxy is a forwarding, non-caching and compressing HTTP proxy server. Basically it squeezes images by converting them to lower quality JPEGs and compresses (gzip) HTML and other text-like data. It also provides other features such as: HTML/JS/CSS optimization, preemptive hostname resolution, transparent proxying, IP ToS marking (QoS), Ad-Blocker, detailed logging and more.

Ziproxy may be installed in a number of different ways. Most common setup modes:

 1) As a remote proxy (by far, the most commonly used setup)
    Ziproxy accesses the remote www servers through a fast link,
    compresses the data, then send it to the client through a slow link.
    In such setups there's no additional software required by the client,
    Ziproxy acts much as a common network proxy.
 2) As a local and remote proxy
    Similar to setup #1, except that the client also runs its instance of
    Ziproxy. Although Ziproxy does not require a Ziproxy-specific client,
    there are circumstances where is desired to run Ziproxy-as-a-client:
      * Client does not support JPEG 2000.
      * Client supports JPEG 2000 but it is buggy and/or slow.
      * Client does not support gzip.
      * Need to support both JPEG 2000 and standard JPEG at the same proxy.
