browser-repl is built on top of the wd module, which is an implementation of the webdriver protocol.

Once a browser session is established, socket.io is used to establish a persistent connection that works on all browsers as fast as possible.

The socket.io server is hosted locally, and a reverse tunnel is set up with localtunnel which gives your computer a temporary URL of the format https://{uid}.localtunnel.me.

The lines you enter are subsequently evald. A global window.onerror hook is also set to capture errors. Summoning repl with the -n argument disables this.
