SQUIRREL is a fully decentralized, peer-to-peer cooperative web cache, based on
the idea of enabling web browsers on desktop machines to share their local
caches. This results in an efficient, highly scalable, self-organizing and
fault-tolerant web cache without need for dedicated hardware or the
corresponding administration cost. It exhibits performance comparable to a
centralized web cache in terms of hit ratio, bandwidth usage and latency, while
while imposing negligible overhead on the participating nodes.
