As well as those you've mentioned there's
Nginx, which has a feature set close to lighttpd, performance closer
to haproxy and is as easy to configure as pound. It's SSL support is
relatively new, though.
Varnish, which works much like squid in reverse proxy mode but isn't as baroque.
It's also possible to set up lighttpd or apache to do this, but you
won't get the performance you would with the others.
