    I need to:
    1. load a webpage, switch to another webpage (maybe a few more)
    2. clear cookies and history
    3. switch proxies (i guess using foxyproxy)
    Repeat again and again.

    I would also like a delay in the changing of webpages.

    Is this possible with imacro, or do I need a winautomation type program.

    You can only do this with imacro's :

    1. Go to a site
    2. Change to any other page on that website from that page.
    3. Register for accounts, (Manual intervention needed if site employs captcha)
    4. You can also switch tabs

    But you cannot change proxy automatically with it. I don't know what's up with winautomation. Also, this information is best to my knowledge. There may be more experienced users who may know otherwise.

    yeah switiching proxies is something which is not within webpage so no help here from imacros .i advise yo to go with winautomation or another way could be
    1. get any automatic ip changer and set time interval for each ip change
    2. set same time interval between macro call
    guess that`ll help

    automate ftw, I've used all three of them and I always seem to go back to automate.

    iMacros is a bit limiting, constrains you mostly to inside the browser

    Winautomation doesn't have those same constraints but is basically an affordable automate lacking a few features

    Automate is a fortune but is very robust, has a bit of a learning curve but works well when u learn how to use it, plus u can find automate 6 on the torrent networks I'm sure

    I use this software called automation anywhere. It doesn't have limitation of imacro where you are confirmed to a browser.

    What I like is, it is easy to use. I tried Automate 6 but too hard for me.

    ZennoPoster will do this with ease.

    Yeah, i was talking with some of the developers not too long ago ironically. They seem like genuinely nice people... ...But their program is a bit lacking. There are some instances where the program just can't click on things or select correctly. Their tech support guy worked diligently for about an hour working through a variable issue, but in the end it couldn't do some simple directory listings.

    Ubot is great once you get the hang of it. It also has a bit higher learning curve compared to Zenno and the other ones. The community is great however, and people on the forums are usually willing to help each other with issues.

    You can also buy/get "bots" from other people that are essentially just code and strip/re-use as needed just to learn. Ubot seems to have some issues with multi-threading.. But it'll do almost anything those other programs do, just somewhat differently. :cool:
