General questions - what iMacros can (not) do

Post by neumicha » Fri Sep 07, 2018 10:43 am

Hi,
I'm planing a little project. I want to automate a web browser (need some interactivity if website needs it).
Before starting with iMacros I have some simple questions:

- Planing on using the Fierfox-Addon. As I need functionality like (if... else...) I read about the js-Mode. Can a website determine if i use iMacros or have automated this stuff?
- I need (pseudo)random numbers.
- I need to count the number of specific HTML Tags
- ...

Can I achieve this with your software? Would be much easier than using Ruby and Mechanize all the time :)

Thanks

Yes with js-Mode but older iMacros 8.9.7 has more functions with Javascript. Newer version is limited with Javascript and functions.
