    I've started playing with imacros and I've been able to do exactly what I needed easily in one instance. However, for it to be useful to me I need to run multiple browsers (multithreaded?). To do this I need to use a separate proxy IP for each, is that possible?

    e.g.

    imacro browser 1 with proxy 127.0.0.1 running
    imacro browser 2 with proxy 127.0.0.2 running
    imacro browser 3 with proxy 127.0.0.3 running

    simultaneously on the same box.

    I've just been using the PROXY ADDRESS= for each, but it just uses the most recently executed macro to set the IP across all instances... maybe I need to write up some vb.net thang?

    I don't think so, when your proxy is set it will run in all browsers.

    You should be able to do this by using Firefox Portable. It'll have EVERYTHING contained in a single folder and you don't even need to install it. It won't interfere or affect the installed Firefox in anyway (at least none that I can think of at the moment). You can then install all the addons you'd like and set the proxy in the network settings.

    And it gets even better. You can make copies of this folder and have multiple instances of Firefox completely isolated from each other (Unique settings for each). Do a search for "firefox portable" and download the one from PortableApps dot com.

    Maybe try virtual platform like VMware or virtualbox, it can run multithread and each had different ip.
