That's usually what browsers do already, but ok..

Yep, that's usually what webservers do. And proxies too.
Suggestions and patches for improvement are always welcome though.

However, I want to parse the complete html, analyze it and send it to 
users' browser.

Well, the browser already does that all by itself, so it's not clear 
what your purpose is, here.

That basic idea is ok.

However, it only can happen after the html is already sent according to 
the above program structure.

Don't understand exactly what structure you're referring to, but yes, it 
is hard to parse the html before the server sent it.

It is not quite clear what the problem is, here.

Is there any general way to fetch html?

With a browser maybe ?
