Can you be more specific? Do you want to script the browser so it 
displays a page (try PAMIE for IE or PyXPCOM for Mozilla) or do you want 
to write a program that fetches the data and displays it (urllib2 or 
mechanize/ClientForm to fetch the data, BeautifulSoup to parse the 
response and get what you want).

Google any of the above for details or ask again here.
