Hi there,

We just published httpedit, a "low-level" interface to HTTP. The application
allows you to write a raw HTTP request, send it against a web server and
review the response, all from within the same app.

No rocket science, but it is useful when you do not want a browser to alter
any of the data you are sending, e.g. when debugging an HTTP server
implementation or checking the response of an application to specific
characters. By modifying the request and seeing the response on the same
screen you are able to easily spot differences in the server handling of

Of course it is no substitute to an editor + nc + stunnel, but it comes
close :)
