      AdGuard vs TinyProxy opinions
      This alternative is disputed. AdGuard is still a legitimate alternative to TinyProxy, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      it is an ad blocking program not something made for forwarding websites like tinyproxy.

    7. A small and fast caching web proxy (a web cache, an HTTP proxy, a proxy server). Polipo can be used in place of ad-filtering, privacy-enhancing proxies such as Junkbuster, Privoxy or WWWOFFLE.

      Discontinued

      From the official website, "Polipo is obsolete. When it was first written, Polipo was probably the best HTTP proxy available. Since then, the web protocols have changed, and Polipo hasn't kept up — it has no support for HTTP/2.0 or the WebSocket protocol. Polipo will no longer be maintained."
