Am I correct in saying that CFOS is some sort of client / workstation based Internet 'acceleration' / caching / traffic shaping tool?
I am wondering, if NS uses Squid as a proxy based cache and traffic shaping tool, then what is the point of using a client based tool that provides the same functions of Squid?
In the past, I have seen a number of these client based tools and have to wonder if some of these are pseudo 'accelerators' that, in reality do not actually 'speed up' Internet access but instead manipulate the workstations configuration (ie. the manipulation of the Windows host file / configuration and the creation of a separate caching mechanism) to make it seem that the user is getting more bandwidth or faster access.
Whilst I am not stating that CFOS is actually one of these pseudo tools, I have to question the fiability of what is claimed by some of these tools.
