How to set up Squid Proxy as a web page

I have Squid set up, but when my friend wants to use it, he has to enter my IP and port in his browser settings every time. How can I make it so that he only has to go a webpage I create, and use the proxy from there instead of having to change his browser Network settings every single time? I also have authentication enabled.

I'm not sure I understand the question, but you could point your friend's browser to a hostname (and get yourself set up with free dynamic DNS w/ DynDNS, for example).

Firefox offers an add-on to allow easy switching between proxy / non-proxy usage.

Okay, you know how you can go to websites like and enter a website to go to, and it runs the website through a proxy without having you to edit your browser settings? I want it to be like that. When my friend goes to my IPort address in his web browser, I want it to show the authentication login I have set up with Squid, then run through a website he puts in with the proxy, instead of putting the information in his web browser.
