Hey dardok, I am not an expert with any of these technologies at all, but perhaps you could look into this?
It's an extension you install that then lets you telnet-connect to it and control firefox - which means you could do that from a PT. (There might be an even cleaner interface for programmable access, telnet is just what's advertised on the front page.)
This shows an example on how to visit a website (the remote bridge maybe) and get information out of the resulting page.
