The simplicity of the Ruby bundled library net/http has produced number of derivation / substitution HTTP clients for Ruby. I, who is an author of a HTTP client, performed surveys of those HTTP clients in last several years. One unsurprising thing I found from it is that users can pick one-gem-for-all generic HTTP client and also can pick the best one for the specified purpose.
