Hunchentoot is pretty easy to use, and I bet it is the most widely used
Common Lisp HTTP software.

CL-HTTP is hard to use, and it has a strange, restrictive license.

Portable AllegroServe has not been very actively maintained and
currently does not work on CLozure CL.

Araneida is a dead, dead project.

I recommend Hunchentoot. If you get Quicklisp, loading it is as easy as
(ql:quickload "hunchentoot"). The Hunchentoot documentation is great and
should help get you further along.
