You are asking for a free product able to do what squid does? You are
aware that squid *is* free?

Yup, I am :))

But I am not 100% sure that squid is able to do content based
routing: from the FAQ and the documentation is able to do httpd
acceleration, but can it decide to which web server reroute the request on
the URL basis ? For example:

http://www.mydomain.com/      -> webserver1.mysite.com
http://www.mydomain2.com/     -> webserver2.mysite.com
http://www.mydomain.com/about -> webserver3.mysite.com

Anyway, it is not required to use squid, but *any* free product.
I know that commercial packages such as Inktomi Traffic Server and
Netscape (now iPlanet) Proxy are capable of that ....
