can javascript be faked?

P: n/a
I know this isn't exactly the right group for this question (and if
you know of a more appropriate one I'd be grateful for the info) but I
was wondering if it is possible to make it so that when I visit a
website that requires javascript to be turned on, that the javascript
the website sees is somehow faked? So what I mean is that to the
website it looks as if your browser is using javascript as normal but
in fact the information is all faked? Any ideas, are there any apps
out there that do this?

Thanks for any help.

Web sites test to see if JavaScript is available by running some JavaScript.
The only way to fake it would be to examine the test and then have the
browser make whatever requests to the server that the JavaScript would have
it make. This would, of course, be different on a case by case basis.

.... and since the tests are usually because the site won't work with
JavaScript turned off, it would be a rather pointless exercise anyway.
