May I ask why? What benefits does HTTPie have?

The GitHub page does a good job of highlighting all of the benefits HTTPie has if you're already familiar with cURL. But for me it's the design of the interface with syntax highlighting being the sugar on top.

See: https://github.com/jkbr/httpie#interface-design , https://github.com/jkbr/httpie#redirected-input , https://github.com/jkbr/httpie#usage

I prefer HTTPie because after years of using curl, I still have to Google simple use cases. HTTPie has a very simple a intuitive api.

Apparently it's for humans.
