WWW-HtmlUnit (0.14) ****

This brings the power of Java HtmlUnit to the Perl world. Unlike WWW::Mechanize or WWW::Mechanize::Firefox you get a light, scalable web scraping solution with some optional support for JavaScript. And you will code your web-harvesting scripts using Perl instead of that object and type nightmare of Java.

Although not yet complete this module is a good starting point though.
Its developer is responsive.

For all massive web-scraping tasks in Perl this is the way to go!
