The best way is to use the package manager from the distribution you are using.

Depends on your needs. If you need https support install with a package manager doesn't do the trick. The standard installation of Squid doesn't have https support. When https is needed you have to download the source (wget, browser, ...) and compile it yourself with https enabled.

If you don't need https support install using your favorite package manager is real easy.

Kind regards,
