I don't understand what you want.

Perhaps Lynx can somehow be used for what you want. It is a text based web browser. It sounds like you would have to tie it into a script. If you don't know coding then you'll have to hire someone.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

I'll explain what i want. I just need a command string that will "hit" or visit a website but work in the background, by that i mean not opening any browser windows. There you would not see the result graphically but get a text response from terminal.

What kind of response are you expecting? Perhaps an explicit example of what you want will help.
