    Hello,

    I have an imacros script to scrape data, when I open more than 3-4 instances (window browsers), it slows down alot even though my desktop is a very fast machine with 8gb ram and it doesn't use more than 2 gb ram.Could the reason for it being slow is that the scraped data is saved in the same csv file ?

    Any expert here, if the reason is that, I might create new imacros for each instance.Do you think by saving to file1.csv, file2.csv will speed up the imacros ?

    Thanks

    What is your internet connection speed? because imacros goes to the next step only after the link is fully loaded.

    If your connection is slow,then it will have to wait for the full page to load and then start saving.

    I feel its best to use a seperate file for an instance.
