Web Proxy Problems
For that reason, web proxy have to redirect users to the mobile/lite version of facebook, twitter, gmail, hotmail and yahoo mail. Web proxy can't support the full functions of them.
Web proxy needs to rewrite all the links of pages. It parses the html, style and script files of pages then rewrites all the links. It takes much time to do that. Http proxy doesn't modify the pages. It only fetches pages for browser so it's much faster than web proxy.
