Re: is it possible to curl browser rendered pages ?

Seems like that page is just a container, and the real content is loaded with ajax. Curl just gets you the javascripts, but unless you actually run them, you probably won’t be able to fetch the contents.

However, if you are interested in some specific sub-content of the page, you may be able to track the ajax requests from the browser and repeat them with curl. But you are probably in for a lot of work, if it is at all possible.
