Okay, so there are cases where we change it to 8080, what is that for?

8080 is a common port for proxies.
You can use every port you want, as long as the port is free, the service listen on that port, and the application uses that port to connect.
Squid uses port 3128 by default.

As long as you configure the browser to use port 3128 for proxy.
