request with transparent compression. It also deviates slightly from request's behavior by automatically parsing application/json responses. If you need the raw response body (in whatever encoding was requested), use the body property of the callback's second argument (the response).

This is intended as a drop-in replacement for request--to use it, replace require("request") with require("crequest"). Where it's not a drop-in replacement (not everything inrequest` is proxied yet), please send a pull request.
