Some of 'Splash' features include the ability to process multiple web pages in parallel; retrieving 'HTML' results and/or take screen shots; disabling images or use 'Adblock Plus' rules to make rendering faster; executing custom 'JavaScript' in page context; getting detailed rendering info in 'HAR' format.
