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.

From the product page

CherryProxy is a simple HTTP proxy written in Python 2.x, based on the CherryPy WSGI server and httplib, extensible for content analysis and filtering.

It has not been designed for operational use and the current version lacks some HTTP features (such as HTTPS support), so some websites will not display properly. However, it should be very useful for testing / demo / prototyping / educational purposes.
