I am writing a chrome extension that scrapes a webpage that the user is visiting. I have used a AJAX GET request in the backgrond script to scrape the page. However some pages has javascripts that produces the information I am interested in and I have not been able to get this from an AJAX call since it doesn't execute the scripts. I have searched some scraping tools (selenium, JSDOM) but none of those seems suitable for a chrome extension. Are there any tools suitable for this?
