Python does come with low level modules that you can use but its a lot 
of work. The suggested add ins are generally easier to use or more 
powerful 'out of the box'. But you could use things like urlib2 and 
httplib and cgi etc to do what you want if you really need to stick with 
the standard library.

As to which is "best" that depend on your favoured programming style and 
the exact nature of your problem. We can't answer that for you.
