    Feature List

    1. Automatic proxy setting, if you set the proxy in your environment variable(http_proxy), it will be auto detected and used in your any HTTP request, also it will be used in your HTTPS request by HTTPS Tunnel(denpency by node-tunnel) to make HTTPS request through HTTP. Optional, you can set proxy manually by call setProxy(proxy).

    2. Make your HTTP/HTTPS request with cookie, cookie will be automatic processed int any HTTP/HTTPS request and you can get the cookie value in response.

    3. HTTP redirect handling, HTTP redirect(301/302) will be automatic handled in you HTTP/HTTPS request.
