    Ok, I don't know shit about shit when it comes to bots. But here's what I want: I view a page on LinkedIn (copy/paste, visit on my browser, whatever). The bot opens every link in the <body> section of that page (then ideally closes the window). Basically want a bot to automate exactly what I'm doing manually in this 45 second video.

    Will pay if someone can get this done right.

    I want the simplest, easiest solution possible. Ideally it would start with page one, open all the links on that page, then go on to Page 2 and open all the links on that page, and on and on until LinkedIn prevents it from going further. If this can't be done, I'd be happy with a bot that just opens all the links in the <body> section of a page.

    Use ctrl, Luke!

    press ctrl nd click the bloody links. It should speed up the process.

    I'll think about how you can automize it.

    Okay, so, basically, the task is trivial and you can easily find a person that could write a script for you for approximately $50.

    You just need to find a freelancer. Try freelance(r) or even odesc :)

    OP, you can make use of Imacros to automate it , shouldn't be much of a hussle. I'm not familiar with mac os , but if you installed virtualbox and windows it would be couple minutes of work with autoit to create script fulfilling your needs. Yes, it would be a bit heavy on resources since it would require another os to be up and running, but it would do the job properly in isolated environment what should be considered as positive i think.

    Thank you thank you everybody. I knew what I needed was not difficult. Will mess around with iMacro and if that doesn't work try to find a programmer. Offered someone here from BHW $100 and they recoiled in shock like I'd just offered them $1000 for a Ferrari. Knew it shouldn't be that expensive.

    Still needing this?

    I would do it in .NET though. Easy enough with direct access to DOM document object.
