Actually, you can still use the rendering engine; just enclose the text to be rendered in [tex] tags. That's all the little JS button does anyway. Heck, I rarely use the buttons anyway even though I have JS enabled.

As an example, here's your little snippet rendered with the rendering engine, without the help of any JS buttons.

a=b
a^2=ab
a^2-b^2=ab-b^2
(a+b)(a-b)=b(a-b)
a+b=b
2b=b
2b=b
2=1

One thing to note is that it seems you need to enclose each individual line of a multi-line selection, or else everything gets run together as one line.
