All these functions seem capable of doing the same things: Import, URLFetch, URLSave, URLSubmit, URLRead, URLExecute. I'm confused as to when to use which one.

For web related code, I usually only need to perform POSTs and GETs with header information, authentication and parameters - but I'm overloaded with choices!

So what is the best choice for simple posts and gets? Can anyone clear this up for me?
