    I want to utilize all the different social networking sites by sending out messages to the members through the networking site automatically.

    I have done this before with php where u login, search users, send messages.
    The problem is that I find it difficult to write all the code to deal with setting headers and cookies since they are always different for all the sites.

    What I was thinking is if i could control the web browser with a programming language then I could just send my web browser to the urls with the post parameters attached. I wouldn't have to deal with headers or cookies cause they would be real and stored for me!

    Has anyone ever done such a thing with the web browser.

    I think JavaScript can be used to change the appearance of the browser and other stuff.

    Hi, if all you want to do is repetitive tasks such as browse to a url and then fillout forms and press the submit button then take a look at Imacros.

    Regards

    Delphi (Pascal) are the greatest way to control browser. it has internal activex shell component for "internet explorer", that allows to control browser easily.

    .net also has an internet explorer control you can use programmatically. When im coding a web app I like to use HTTPWebRequest, Its a .net class similar to php's cURL but I find it much easier to use. good luck man

    Short of learning a "real" programming language, there's always:
    • AutoIT - A simple scripting language that allows you to automate just about anything. You'll need to come to terms with learning some basic scripting, but in the long-run it gives you far more control over the application.
    • iMacros - Automate online tasks without the need to learn any kind of programming.
    • WinAutomation - Automate just about anything without the need to learn any kind of programming.

    You may try Selenium - another great tool for programming of browser behaviour.
