    Hello, in past few months I have learned much better how to use imacros and it helped me a lot to make money, but I found out that its not enough for me, with better tool I could make like 10 times. My main problem with imacros is proxy support and captcha solving. Are there any tools for creating "simple" bot that deals better with proxies and captchas? I have heard about Ubot, but not sure if its what im looking for. I would like to know what are your thoughts on this. Thanks a lot guys for any ideas.

    maybe you should specify what's exactly the problem with the mentioned things using imacros, because:

    1. imacros supports proxies, public proxies or even private ones, only you cannot use those private proxies which use username:password auth and not ip auth, you can switch proxies between 2 loops etc.
    2. imacros also supports captcha solving, all the top solving services have their ready made codes what you can add to your macros, just because you'll use another tool than imacros, captcha solving success rates won't be higher, if that's what you're after

    although i see where you're coming from, imacros sometimes isn't enough, but i can't really give you a better idea as i'm not a coder, however i know that a lot of people don't like ubot, partly because it creates pretty resource intensive bots even for simple tasks

    i think everybody has his own favorite language to code and we can sit here all day long to write pros and cons for every language, that's why i said that you should be more specific with the things you mentioned, so those who know, can help actually without shooting in the dark :)
    but if you don't really want to learn a language, you can take a look at winautomation or zennoposter besides ubot

    Obviously I am biased, but UBot is a great goto for next steps if you want more specific marketing automation capabilities. iMacros is not built for marketers, by marketers; UBot Studio is.


    my 2c: I think the myth of overusage of resources in UBot got started because several users have incredible (and incredibly large) scripts, with thousands of lines of code that do 10 or 20 different things (and include 3 or 4 plugins). Generally, if you follow the conventions of normal programming, you'll build multiple lightweight scripts that are simple and don't hog your resources. If you had a Chrome plugin that did 10 or 20 different automated things, your Chrome instance would be pretty big too if they were all running at once.

    Here's a video of a script in UBot that simply switches IPs with a proxy and captcha solving (manual, but it wouldn't make a big difference if it used a single plugin to connect to the API.)

    OP, I've sent you a PM with the script in it so you have an idea of how complicated it would be. Happy to talk to you more there about options for your next automation software!
