    howdy blackhatters,

    I gotta program a little tool, basically what i need it to do is

    A. There will be a list of websites
    B. Open the browser and go to 1 of the websites
    C. *timer of 15 seconds, then close the browser window*
    D. Open the next website in the list

    Now, im not asking someone to program this for me, but im NOT a programmer.

    What language should i "program" this in? Or would this be done with a Macro or something?

    Or does this program already exist?

    Thanks
    Johnny 5

    You should try out WinAutomation, you can get a 30 day trial.

    The interface is pretty easy, you can use drag and drop.

    I wouls suggest use perl on windows you can get from activeperl.com

    use the module
    Win32::IEAutomation

    sample code just a basic you need to build on this

    Code:
    use Win32::IEAutomation;
    
    
    my $ie = Win32::IEAutomation->new( visible => 1, maximize => 1);
    $ie->gotoURL('http://someurl.com');
    $ie->WaitforDone;
    sleep(15);
    $ie->closeIE();
    
    
    loop this and you will get what you want to achieve
