Maybe this library can be of help while testing/profiling


"Request.el is a HTTP request library with multiple backends. It supports 
url.el which is shipped with Emacs and curl command line program. User can use 
curl when s/he has it, as curl is more reliable than url.el. Library author can 
use request.el to avoid imposing external dependencies such as curl to users 
while giving richer experience for users who have curl."


Sorry for the github link; but it can be just cloned without running
their js.
