I've been looking around for a web browser either written in python, or 
with python bindings.
What I need to do is load a web-page, enter a password-protected site 
and follow certain links, it needs to have frames and follow the refresh 
meta. I'm running winxp, python 2.4

At first I thought about using a python web browser, but none I could 
find had frames support. The most promising ones were quite old too. And 
one that was completly written in Python used and old version and just 
kept crashing in python 2.4.
Then, I thought about using some browser with bindings. I've looked all 
over and found about nothing. Mozilla and its xpcom just seems quite 
hard and I'm not sure if that does the job I want. I tried finding COM 
bindings in other browsers, but I coudn't understand them and make them 

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
