Nothing as complete as Watir. You could just use Watir to test your seaside

For simple get/post action in Smalltalk, you could pull Scamper (a Squeak
browser) and script it. It is fairly easy to understand/port. Bijan Parsia's
networking chapter in the squeak blue book has a nice intro.

See the parsia_2.pdf at:

I ported it once to VA Smalltalk in the late 90s for some internal website
testing. Unfortunately, no support CSS/Javascript, etc. and you would want
those for something modern.

If you really wanted Watir in Smalltalk, you could do a port. This would be
a bunch of work, but since it is Ruby, the concepts should be similar. For
the browser binding, you'll need something like OSProcess.
