If I


then I can't see the page because it needs a JavaScript compatible webbrowser.

Are there any text-based webbrowsers that supports JavaScript?:

Isn't that basically any browser with just CSS/Images disabled? You want the DOM to be loaded as it is the only way you'll be able to have JS functioning properly. – Niklas Jun 19 '11 at 11:05
@Niklas Not if you don't have a GUI running. – Daniel Beck Jun 19 '11 at 11:32

Based on the comments under this article (which is old but provides some good pointers):

  • elinks - experimental javascript support (as of 2005 - may be better now?)

  • links2 - supports javascript and pipelining and image display without X

  • links-hacked - ssl and some javascript support

elinks on Ubuntu 14.04 doesn't seem to have javascript support enabled – DevZer0 Dec 12 '13 at 3:47
The article "Building eLinks Text-based Web Browser with (Some Sort of) JavaScript Support" describes how to get javascript configured in elinks, though it apparently still doesn't work with most pages. – nealmcb Oct 29 '14 at 15:20
