    So I am looking into web automation but I don't have the monies for software like UBot Studio. Does anyone have any names of any decent free / cheap software libraries I can use? I am not to bothered about the language, although in Windows I do find C# usually the best for repeating back user actions in terms of automation.

    Nice, will take a look, not to great with JS tbh the scope between functions and such always seems to throw me on complex code. But anyhow keep any suggestions coming please people.

    It depends a lot on what you're trying to accomplish.

    If you're just doing repetitive desktop tasks - stick with AutoIt
    If you're doing repetitive browser tasks - stick with iMacro
    If you're really good with C# like you mentioned download Visual Studio (or express version - which is free) and set it up to do anything.
    If you're scrapping, there's about a million different ones to try
    If it's a simple bot you want to make, try Kantu Web Automation or Botchief
    Zennoposter is good for random macros

    You can find something to do anything. But the thing about Ubot is that it does all of them in one. So it really just depends on what you want to get done, if you need something to do everything that Ubot does you will not find it. You'll have to use more than one of these. Because sadly, an open-source Ubot just doesn't exist right now
