You would need to use a scripting language in that case. Unfortunately, due to Chrome's limitations you can't use JavaScript with iMacros in Chrome yet. We are working on connecting normal scripting interface to Chrome. We hope to finish this in the next few months.

However, you can do this with Firefox. Here is a sample script that you can adjust:

Code: Select all

var macro, iret;
var min = 5;
var max = 10;

function getRandomInt(min, max)
	return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1)) + min;

function startMacro(delay)
	macro = "CODE:";
	macro += "VERSION BUILD=6311226 RECORDER=FX\n";
	macro += "URL GOTO=http://www.google.com\n";
	macro += "WAIT SECONDS=" + delay;
	iret = iimPlay(macro)

var stop=0;
	startMacro(getRandomInt(min, max));
while(stop<10) //set a real-life condition here!
