I've quick tested the clickfisch.net service with a self-developed snooper proxy to see what's exactly happening. I've tested this with both the WM2003SE PIE client and NetFront 3.1. gzip support-wise, Skweezer supported both browsers. Because NetFront 3.1 doesn't send out If-Modified-Since HTTP headers at all, Skweezer never returned 304 Not Modified to NF, unlike to PIE.
- it does heavy image crunching, unlike Skweezer
- it sends out malformed URL's to all pages, so a lot of them are simply unable to response with the requested page (for example my homepage), unlike Skweezer, which always returns the right page
- it has no HTML body gzip'ing, unlike Skweezer
- Skweezer has three display modes (one-column (PDA)/text only/original), unlike the one-column only offered by clickfisch.net.
- after a FORM POST (for example, logging in; it's needed with both free proxy services because none of them stores cookies between IE sessions), Skweezer doesn't mess up the URL of the page (it will still be, say, http://www.skweezer.net/s.aspx/2/www...rums/index.php
), unlike clickfisch.net (an example of the URL's issued by the latter is http://clickfisch.net/proxy/proxy.ph...NhY2ZkMA%3D%3D
of the same PPCT page)
Incidentally, the last time I've scrutinized Skweezer ( see my remarks at http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/foru...ic.php?t=35450
