Java-Based Caching Web Proxy

RabbiT 4.7 With New Proxy Chain Selector

Jessica Thornsby

Web proxy aims to speed up surfing over slow links, by blocking advertising and background images.

Version 4.7 of RabbIT is out now!

RabbIt is a Java-based, caching Web proxy that is intended to speed up surfing over slow links, by stripping away advertising and background images, and scaling down images to lower quality JPEGs. If the latter option is selected, then RabbIT does depend upon an image converter.

In this release, a bug that corrupted some pipelines requests has been fixed, and a proxy chain selector has been added so it is possible to direct internal and external requests to different paths.
