not really. However, you can use curl under cygwin on windows, or even use the native dos/windows clients to suit your needs. http://curl.haxx.se/download.html

For simple operations, you can use a simple telnet. And write the HTTP protocol by hand. Oh the joys of plain-text protocols :)

telnet google.com 80
