    I starting learning how to use sockets but a lot of people are
    complaining why I don't use something else so I was wondering which is
    another way to surf the web? Remember I want a fast way to surf the web,
    ideally a way as fast as a socket.

    No. I mean like an http client like Net:HTTP or something.

    Net::HTTP is the standard. RFuzz also comes with a pretty good HTTP
    client. I think there is one called Net::Simple or Simple::HTTP too.

  5. I think you should probably read some introductory material on
    networking, sockets in particular and HTTP before you go on with this. I
    have the feeling that you still have some misconceptions about these
    terms. You'll find plenty of stuff on this on the web, try wikipedia
    for a start. My 0.02EUR
