Guzzle is a game changer in the world of PHP HTTP clients. Guzzle allows you to truly reap the benefits of the HTTP/1.1 spec. No other library makes it easier to manage persistent connections or send requests in parallel.
In addition to taking the pain out of HTTP, Guzzle provides a lightweight framework for creating web service clients. Most web service clients follow a specific pattern: create a client class, create methods for each action, create and execute a cURL handle, parse the response, implement error handling, and return the result. Guzzle takes the redundancy out of this process and gives you the tools you need to quickly build a web service client.
