When I'm writing python, I usually use Requests[1] if I only need http(s)
instead of pycurl or urllib. Normally I might not think to include it on a
list like this, but I see that Jakarta Commons HttpClient is there...

It has inspired a C++ wrapper[2] for libcurl that looks really nice to use,
though I've not used it for anything non-trivial because I can't quite
require C++11 just yet for the projects where I'm most likely to use

Poco::Net[3] probably warrants a mention.
