Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
HTTP proxy written in Go. COW can automatically identify blocked sites and use parent proxies to access. COW's design goal is automation. Ideally, users don't need to care about which websites are inaccessible, and they can directly connect to the website without slowing down the access speed due to the use of secondary agents. As an HTTP proxy, it can be provided to mobile devices; if deployed on a domestic server, it can be used as an APN proxy. Support HTTP, SOCKS5, shadowsocks and cow itself as a secondary proxy. Multiple secondary agents can be used to support simple load balancing. Automatically detect whether the website is blocked, and only use the secondary proxy for the blocked website. Automatically generate PACs containing directly connected websites, you can bypass COW when visiting these websites. Built-in common websites that can be directly connected , such as domestic social, video, bank, e-commerce and other websites (can be added manually).
- For unknown websites, first try to connect directly, then use a secondary proxy to retry the request after failure, and then try directly after 2 minutes
- Built-in common walled websites , reducing the time required to detect walled walls (can be added manually)
- The corresponding host will be added to the PAC after a certain number of successful direct access visits
- After the host is walled for a certain number of times, it will be directly accessed with a secondary proxy
- The list of built-in websites and user-specified websites will not appear in the statistics file
- Whether it is a normal HTTP GET request or a CONNECT request, COW will automatically retry the request after failure
