I use ELinks for 90%+ of my web browsing, and would love to find a way
of dealing with JavaScript. I just found out about PhantomJS [1], a
"minimalistic, headless, WebKit-based, JavaScript-driven tool". I'm
wondering if this might be an option for dealing with JavaScript when
browsing the net with ELinks, by passing the URI to an external script
that returns some nice html back to ELinks. I haven't played around
with it at all, but it seems promising. Maybe pipe the html through
something like goose [2] or boilerpipe [3] for good measure. I found
out about PhantomJS on this [4] thread.
