Using Selenium and Python to screenshot a javascript-heavy page

As websites become more JavaScript heavy, it's harder to automate things like screenshotting for archival purposes. I've seen examples and suggestions to use PhantomJS for visual testing/archiving of websites, but have run into issues such as the non-rendering of webfonts. I've never tried out Selenium until today...and while I'm not thinking about performance implications yet, Selenium seems far more accurate than PhantomJS...which makes sense since it actually opens a real browser. And it's not too hard to script to do complex interactions: here's an [example of how to log in to Twitter, write a tweet, upload an image, and send a tweet via Selenium and DOM element selection](https://gist.github.com/dannguyen/8a6fa49253c1d6a0eb92

GitHub RCE by Environment variable injection Bug Bounty writeup
Disclaimer: I'll keep this really short but I hope you'll get the key points.
GitHub blogged a while ago about some internal tool called gerve:
https://github.com/blog/530-how-we-made-github-fast
Upon git+sshing to github.com gerve basically looks up your permission
on the repo you want to interact with. Then it bounces you further in
another forced SSH session to the back end where the repo actually is.
