solipo - polipo GUI for Windows

Solipo is GUI wrapper application for polipo on Windows. Solipo is FREE software.

  • polipo will run in the background as soon as solipo is started.
  • solipo works on Windows XP.

I presume solipo can also run on Windows Vista / Windows 7 but I have never checked because I don't have Windows Vista / Windows 7.

Solipo's icon is designed by Turkie (twilight bookstore).
