I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "screen capture".  But the
webbrowser module in the standard lib might be of some help.  You can
use it to drive a web browser from Python.

to load a page in your browser, you can do something like this:

-----------------------------------
#! /usr/bin/env python

import webbrowser

url = 'http://www.google.com'
webbrowser.open(url)
-----------------------------------
