domcurl: curl + JavaScript

For a long time, I’ve been thinking about what the future of the web looks like when we go past what we know as the traditional web browser. I called this The Headless Web and I wanted to answer, “What if everything was powered by ‘The Web,’ but you never saw a browser?” Specifically, I believe that if you have access to a full browser, but no visible “chrome,” then there is a huge opportunity for a new set of services.

Using the browser as a service is an incredible opportunity. It allows us to take the declarative HTML and combine it with the developer defined procedural execution of JavaScript and run deep analysis on the content.
