in reply to LWP or Mechanize?

As others have said, it really depends on what you're trying to do. If you'd like to download but a file, I'd go for LWP::Simple. If you were going to get into scraping, I'd highly recommend Web::Scraper, but if you want to navigate a site, click a few links and submit a form or two, yes, go for WWW::Mechanize.
