Tag Processing Delay

by esullivan on Sat Oct 08, 2016 5:52 am

I am trying to extract some data from a Web site. I am able to successfully navigate thru a number of pages to get to the one that has the data to extract. It works...but it seems to often hang for minutes before completing. Here's the line that causes the delay:
TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=ID:ctl00_mainContent_lnkbutDates EXTRACT=TXT

The rest of the site is very responsive. Is there anything that I can do to speed up the process. I have 20-30 extractions per page (about 10 pages) so performance is important.
Some details: I/E 11, iMacros 11, Windows 7

Thanks for any help!

For anyone else having a similar problem...Turns out that using the iMacros browser instead of an I/E plug-in made a huge difference in performance.
