I found the built-in http client had problems (as of R10B) when
interacting with various versions of IIS. I can't remember now if it was
the client's or the server's fault, but I do remember wanting to be able
to work around the problem by forcing the client to use HTTP v1.0
instead of v1.1.

I think the hard-coded HTTP version number in the built-in client was
the only reason I switched to ibrowse.

Regards,
