To star with, the "Apache" name most probably stays there just to show that it's under Apache Foundation control, as it's stated on the web site: "...Formerly a commercial product, Yahoo! donated it to the Apache Foundation, and it is now an Apache TLP."

Also, from there - this is not a web server, but a proxy server.

So, to answer your question - to serve web pages you need Apache Web Server.

If you need proxy, you can use either Traffic server, or another proxy server like Squid.
