As I have written in other mails to this list, there is apparently no
non GUI browser with proper Javascript support.  While I agree with
NN_il_Confusionario that much Javascript content is unnecessary, my
great problem is that my consumer wireless AP / switch / router
interfaces all require Javascript, so I can't modify their
configurations from the cli.
