Section vs Squid: What are the differences?
Developers describe Section as "Run compute workloads on a distributed edge". Edge Compute Platform gives Dev and Ops engineers the access and control they need to run compute workloads on a distributed edge. On the other hand, Squid is detailed as "A caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more". Squid reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. It runs on most available operating systems, including Windows and is licensed under the GNU GPL.
Section and Squid can be primarily classified as "Web Cache" tools.
Squid is an open source tool with 578 GitHub stars and 202 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Squid's open source repository on GitHub.
