Hi kevin.

Yea maybe they are incompatible with each other. I'm a bit surprised that people still include Blob and FormData polyfills still to this day. All browsers, even NodeJS and Deno include a built-in Blob and FromData class natively nowadays.
I can play around with them and see if there is any issue when using them both together. but i'm a bit busy right now. I saw that edbrowse is actually running quickjs. and isn't actually running in an actual browser such as chrome, firefox or safari. 
I'm a bit impressed by what has been built and re-implemented in edbrowse to build a cli browser. It takes a lot to build a browser from the ground up and make everything spec compatible with new browser standard APIs poping in all the time now. 
I wouldn't even dare to take on such a huge job. I would just have built something with a headless browser and depend on the blink engine to do all the job and then use puppeteer to integrate with the browser programmatically through the command line.
