Got is a lightweight and powerful HTTP client for Node.js. It is built on top of the http and https modules and provides a simple, consistent API for making HTTP requests.

Got is one of the most feature-rich http clients in NodeJS ecosystem offering http2, proxy and asynchronous support making it ideal for web scraping.

Got also supports many specific domain integrations like AWS, plugins for various public APIs like github.

Note that Got has some inconsistent behaviors when it comes to web scraping use.
For example, it normalizes http headers which is undesired functionality in scraping and should be disabled.

Symfony-http is a PHP library that provides a set of classes for working with HTTP requests and responses. It is part of the Symfony CMS framework, but can also be used independently.
