Hello Eone,

Try adding SET !SUPER_SECRET_TURBO_MODE YES to your macro.

Of course I'm just joking.

I don't see anything obvious that you could change about your macro to make it go faster. Macro playback speed is going depend on the speed of your computer, your internet connection, and web server load / response times.

If the pages you are automating have a lot of images, you can also try using the FILTER command to prevent images from loading to speed up the web pages.

I don't really know how you could make it run faster besides !TIMEOUT, but if you are trying to make your code run faster than you need to worry about how long it takes for the URL to load, and i have a few suggestions about this:

1. if you are using Firefox, you should try an addon called AdBlockPlus. Why have the ads loading when no one is even looking at the screen? AdBlockPlus will block many Flash ads as well as scripts that can sometimes slow down the browsing process.

2. Disable the images. Each of these are taking up bandwidth when loading. If they are off, pages load faster and everything works for efficiently

3.Turn off Flash completely. Unless you are specifically working with a Flash-related object, you won't need to use Flash at all when using iMacros. Turning it off will make everything more efficient.

if you use any of these suggestions, it will probably speed up how much time it takes for each page to load, as well as speed up your browser and how much bandwith you use.
