in thread Timing web page download.

The most likely candidate NPM seems like it might be jscrape, which combines jsdom, request, and jquery. The reason I recommended Javascript / Node as an option is your own language:

This works more-or-less the way I intended, there are two problems though - since the list of links is dynamic, and partly created using javascript, I had to use the browser to create that list.

I need a way of parsing web page, and getting a list of all its component, and this is my first problem.

If you are dealing with pages that use Javascript to dynamically load resources, then you have to have something that can interpret that Javascript as a browser would.

As something completely different, you might want to check out Selenium.

[erix]: they've stuck nuclear missiles in Kaliningrad - they can just reach Berlin :)
[LanX]: naaah! Putin wouldn't nuke all the Russians in Berlin
[Your Mother]: Putin is a bad guy but heís not that kind of bad guy. (Who would launch.)
[erix]: fortunately, Putin seems to be ill -- or at least, they're building a hospital for him and his cronies in Moscow
[erix]: nobody knows what kind it takes :)
[erix]: I say his seems a face that launches a thousand missiles :)
[Your Mother]: I say I do. :P
[Your Mother]: Missiles would be an idiotís play. Putin is many things but he is not an idiot.
[erix]: I like the idea of the trumps troup of imbeciles growing slightly nervous now their incompetence will be tested
[erix]: you seem forget there is another idiot coming :)
