I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The "best" choice depends on what you are trying to achieve.  Normally, I would use an HttpWebRequest to either GET from a URL or POST to a URL.
