in reply to Mozilla::Mechanize question

Win32::IE::Mechanize can definitely handle JS. Win32::IE::Mechanize simply runs IE as a OLE control, so it does everything just like IE would, including using and changing IE's cookies, cache and history. Think of the module as a remote control for IE.

Mozilla::Mechanize is suppose to be the same thing for Mozilla. It should handle JS without problem. I have never used it.

    Althouh Win32::IE::Mechanize uses IE as a OLE control. I have faced problem of login to a website which was using heavy javasripts. This module can help you (I mean this is a best of available options) however it cannot be used as a general solution.
