using open() for local files and ORLs is called url-fopen and works in
PHP, which is a major security hole, because it even allows one to
include() code files from the web without knowing it, that kind of thing...
python has two functions so you know what you're doing.
If your webpage needs cookies or something, you'll need urllib2
If you wanna parse it afterwards use Htmllib or BeautifulSoup
