Plenty.

Definitly! What is it you want to do?

Where do the pages come from (if not from the same domain, it's
impossible in a normal browser). What do you have: A loaded page
in a window or just the URL?

Suggestion:
Use DOM to create an iframe. Load the page into the iframe.
Use DOM to traverse the document tree of the loaded page.
