Local host http to arduino uno?

I'm still pretty new to this and I've done some searching but haven't found any good answers for either possible or not.

I have an application on my PC(windows) that generates simple json strings to a simple localhost page, i.e. 127.0.0.1:85

Can I pull/request those strings via USB(or serial?) of my arduino?
maybe http get over usb?
or some other method that I am still ignorant of?

Thanks!

I experimented with this using a Linux server and a serial port. I used a MySQL database to store the data, and the server and the serial port used the database to communicate with each other. You can do it, but it isn't a simple deal.

I'm not aware of a general solution to your problem but it's quite easy to solve in a specific setup. Just use an application on the PC that waits for a command on the serial interface, calls the web page and returns the data to the Arduino. You have a bunch of choices to do that, on a Windows PC Processing is probably the easiest to deploy.
