control webbrowser remotely?

Web browsers like Firefox have really cool abilities nowadays. Objects
in the current document can be addressed and manipulated by
Javascript. Not very comfortable and not easy to debug.

Q: Is there a way to reach objects in the document from Python?
That would be cool!

Like for instance it's possible to control Excel remotely on Windows.

Anybody knows something?

Its called automation and available in windows for ages. Its implemented
via the COM component object model, and this can be used with Mark
Hammond's win32 extensions for Python.

However, the Firefox object model (based on XCOM I believe) is a
different beast - might be able to get a grip on it, but its firefox own
thing then. And I'm not sure if it is possible to embed python instead
of JScript.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
