HTTP and being able to intercept and render those requests and
much better off using Selenium (http://code.google.com/p/selenium/). I
know that the Python bindings for Selenium 2 (which is Selenium plus
WebDriver) were close to being complete and that Jason Huggins' was
planning on trying to finish them this week - but the Selenium project
is a solid place to start.
Another tool that you might have interest in is Windmill
(http://www.getwindmill.com/) - haven't played around with it myself,
but it might be an option.
Hope that helps.
