Howto automate your Browsing





computeraki
The subject of browsing automation is not something entirely new. After all, web - crawlers are a kind of automaton that browse. Nevertheless, I was searching for a way to put this technology in use and I am writing to share my findings.
Firstly, for the small percentage of Mac Users:
You may not know it but you have an excellent friend bundled in your OS; Automator. A little search in Apple Downloads will reveal some Automator actions that are aimed at this specific purpose of automating your Safari browser.
But there is a more general purpose solution and its name is Selenium. I have found that the most useful version for someone unexperienced is the Firefox Extension. It lets you record your actions as you would in an Excel Spreadsheet with Macro recorder. Look into it. It is very useful.
