You could take a look at Selenium.
From its site: "Selenium tests run directly in a browsers, just as real users do. And they run in Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Firefox on Windows, Linux and Macintosh...Selenium uses JavaScript and Iframes to embed a test automation engine in your browser."

    Looks interesting, thanks. They have Ruby and Java drivers for interacting with the web browser. Basically the javascript repeatedly makes requests back to the test server. Maybe I'll look into making a Perl driver if nobody already is. Or at least take ideas from what he's done there.

    I also found a Mozilla-based Web Spider framework. But that only uses javascript.
