in reply to WWW::Scripter performance

Yeah, Scripter can be slow.

As AnonMonk pointed out, it's a work in progress. Last time I tried it (a year or so ago), it didn't even do the most basic caching of JavaScript and fetched it from the server every time. That's besides the fact that any pure-Perl JavaScript implementation is going to be really slow, and the SpiderMonkey plugin is almost unusable.

It's great that this exists, but it obviously needs work.

    I got sidetracked yesterday and couldn't reply to this. Thanks guys... guess I'll have to bite the bullet and crunch the script myself if I want it to get any better. For now, it's livable. :D
