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.

Primary features World's smallest python proxy!
Features Microproxy is the simplest possible http proxy. It simply relays all bytes from the client to the server at a socket send and recv level. The way it recognises the remote server to connect to is by a simple regex, which extracts the URL of the origin server from the byte stream. (Does that work in all cases: I'm not sure).
