SquidMan for Mac4.2

23 November 2020

Graphical installer and manager for Squid proxy cache.

What is SquidMan for Mac

SquidMan is a graphical installer and GUI for the squid proxy cache for OS X. Squid can:

  • Cache downloaded content, reducing network traffic and improving browsing performance on slow links.
  • Act as a proxy server for other computers on your subnet.
  • And restore the operation of many OS X system services that normally fail through authenticated proxy servers, such as Software Update.

What's new in SquidMan

Version 4.2:
  • Now a universal app that supports Apple Silicon and Intel on Big Sur

Great job! Download, install, configure - done! I am using squid to cache content behind Glimmerblocker for ad removal. We don't have a super high speed internet connection, but now everyone in the house has an ad free (mostly) accelerated internet browsing experience.

This I use on an off but I prefer polipo because it has some ad blocking. If squidman could incorporate some form of ad blocking that would make it number 1

I installed this to run a proxy through a VPN tunnel. It installs Squid for you and has a GUI. Free. Excellent.

This is a very useful tool for people interested in learning more about squid. In addition for those who would like a basic proxy server you should quickly be up and running with SquidMan. An optional demon mode would be quite, but then again, you could install squid. Great Job. Note : By default most settings and caches are stored within the users library folder.

this works a treat though I did need to turn off "enable stealth mode' in the firewall for this to work :? Great software, now I can use my ibook (connected to this mac via firewire - dead screen) on the internet. Excellent!!

this is great and in conjunction with DansGuardian makes the perfect internet filter and speed cache. Using macs at home and want to filter what your kids can see, or maybe at a school or college then this and DansGuardian are perfect for you.

Very nice installer routine. Double click and off you go. I was upgrading from ealier version. Smooth as anything. Now if only the DG maintainer did his updates, I would be fully Squid / DG current.

Great App! Smooth interface which complies(generally) with the AHIG - lightweight, and seemless installation and configuration. Installation and operation is stable under 10.3.6(21 days so far). It'd be even better with a preference pane.

Works like a charm for me. I also signed up for ircache.net and I have better performance now than normal browsing. Kudos.

Squid kindly updated my installation, has a GUI for all the basic options ones needs, then refused to start up at all, having hosed the cache directories. Fantastic idea, but totally useless.
