Generally if you are accessing databases over the internet then fronting
them with an HTTP-based gateway is by far the 'best' option - especially
when considered from a security standpoint (that's not saying it
completely replaces direct socket access - the latter just requires more
IT infrastructure to ensure it is secure; which makes it less generally
useful, and probably best to avoid entirely in a mobile/unlocked down
over-internet access setting).
So, I'd say tsNet is definitely the best way to access HTTP APIs - it is
more efficient and has async (request with callback) for all HTTP method
types (well, it will in 1.3.1 - there's a couple of HTTP methods missing
in previous versions).
