+ mechanize is a Python module for static programmatic web browsing in
+ Python, after Andy Lester's Perl module WWW::Mechanize. With the Browser
+ subclass any url can be opened - not just http - and UserAgentBase
+ offers easy dynamic configuration of user-agent features like protocol,
+ cookie, redirection and robots.txt handling. Other functionalities
+ include easy HTML form filling using ClientForm interface, convenient
+ link parsing and following, browser history with .back() and .reload()
+ methods and automatic handling of HTTP-Equiv and Refresh.
