This talk demonstrates the module WWW::Mechanize::PhantomJS. It discusses how Perl can drive the phantomjs browser to automate websites that heavily rely on Javascript to generate the content.

If time permits, I will also talk about the challenges and benefits of developing two browser automation modules in parallel (WWW::Mechanize::Firefox and WWW::Mechanize::PhantomJS)
