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.

Features

From the product page: Here is a quick summary of WebDebug's features:

  1. Written in Python, tested on Windows NT, 2000 and Solaris. Should run on most (all?) environments that Python supports. Runs best with thread support but you can turn that off
  2. Records all HTTP requests and responses by acting as a browser's proxy server. Supports Keep-Alive
  3. Displays these HTTP messages (including headers, content, etc.) through a simple browser interface
  4. Generates statistics such as total message size, total size of each mime-type, throughput, etc.
  5. Allows the saving and loading of captured HTTP requests/responses and also statistics in tab-delimited file format, suitable for importing into spreadsheets
