what is the best web emulator ? ubot,imacro, i prefer know more options .
selenium is great if you know some programming
yea curious about this also just got imacros like it but i'm sure it's limited when i told my friend whos a super good coder about uBot he said it was a PoS and i should just learn VB6 or C++ lol.
gonna check out selenium.
curious if there are any others good thread
VB6 and C++ are programming languages... meaning you actually need to know how to program well to use them well and it takes years to develop these skills. Using VB6 or C++ for the simple tasks that iMacros can achieve is also not every smart because it will take you 10x more time to do a simple task with a low level language like C++ than it will with iMacros.
Just learn one piece of software first; don't be a jack of all trades, be a master of one.
I tried Imacros and Ubot. For me Ubot works best as with it i can use add proxy, multithread and many more features which is required in a bot for IM.
by i still havent found a solution that works cross plattform and without an xserver (linux) installed or a GUI interface. to scale web automation its best not to have a graphical frontend but still all elements of a site will be downloaded and interpreted correctly (flash also). i'm a fan of shell/CLI based linux servers - wouldnt it be nice to have a web automation software that runs as a daemon and can be scaled without any issues?
its a hard and long game here. simple http-clients such as HtmlClient for java or curl dont do everything i want (no JS parsing) and that can be detected very easy from any website.
if you want to know a bit more on the topic drop me a PM!
