Chris, looks like your hopes should be pinned on eLinks -  
http://elinks.or.cz/

It is a live project (at least it has been updated recently :) ), and has  
"some javascript support" according to the sort of hearsay found on Google  
that now passes for information. If you give it a try I would be  
interested to hear of results.

(Maybe I will go through the misery of finding the tools I really need to  
compile it on Mac and giving it a try myself. Although I am personally  
happy with Opera).

An alternative might be to use a browser like Opera (which does support  
javascript) in a text mode. It really depends on what you are trying to do  
with it...

cheers
