    Yesterday when asked about Typhoeus I brought up that the author has stated he would likely take a different approach:

    So just to cite my sources, and to facilitate further discussion I dug up the quote+source.

    "Thank you. Actually it’s funny because if I have the chance to do that now, [laughs] I would make it very different… Yeah. I wouldn’t use a native library at all. I would just use threads and the connection pool, stuff like that."
    - Paul (

    Just to be clear, I am not saying my little gist is this new implementation or a replacement for Typhoeus. It was simply grown out of a specific use-case.
