What's the reason to use client mode stunnel for http?
Most web browsers support http natively.

The port is also confusing. Since you use client mode your
httpsupportingproxy2:6588 should be an SSL-enabled server
and 127.0.0.1:443 is a plain http service, isn't it?

And to have a certificate-based authentication it's a good idea to turn
it on. SSL is vulnerable to main-in-the-middle attacks, otherwise.
