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

pymiproxy is a small, lightweight, man-in-the-middle proxy capable of performing HTTP and HTTPS (or SSL) inspection. The proxy provides a built-in certificate authority that is capable of generating certificates for SSL-based destinations. Pymiproxy is also extensible and provides two methods for extending the proxy: method overloading, and a pluggable interface. It is ideal for situations where you're in dire need of a cool proxy to tamper with out- and/or in-bound HTTP data.
