I only know how to do it on windows with Internet Explorer:

require ‘win32ole’
ie = WIN32OLE::new(‘InternetExplorer.Application’)
ie.navigate(“http://www.google.com”)
print "retrieving "
while ie.readystate == 1
#iexplore not visible while loading page
sleep 1
print “.”
end
ie.visible = true
sleep 2
ie.visible = false
sleep 2
ie.visible = true
sleep 1
ie.quit
