What is a HTTP proxy?

A HTTP proxy acts as an intermediary between a HTTP client (i.e. browser) and HTTP server. It receives all requests from the browser, and relays them (possibly modified) to the server. Likewise, it receives all responses from the server, and relays them (possibly modified) to the client. HTTP Proxies can be used for a wide variety of tasks, including filtering, logging, caching, etc, etc, etc.
