Nobody into doing a browser-class that can take care of this :-) Sort
of, just fire up a browser send it an url, and it takes care of
cookie-handling and so on??

I am trying to merge together the functionality of my two supreme++
http-classes now, and also looking at trying to do a browser-class,
but the inspiration is unfortunetaly a little low at the
moment.. Mostly because I only get feedback from myself..
