Er, I just wonder. It seems there are quite many open source proxies out there. I just wonder; which one do you think is the best overall? Which one is the fastest? Which one is the least buggy? Which one has the best reporting feature (bandwidth usage per users per month, etc)? Which one would you suggest?

It can do that along with a lot of other things. You can use it is a standard caching proxy on the local network, or it can also be used as a "reverse proxy" to sit in front of a specific set of web servers and load balance or cache, etc. It also supports linking multiple caches into a hierarchical cooperative cache (using ICP).
