iMacros Software Automates Web Surfing, Form Filling, Website Testing, and Web Screen Scraping

(PRWEB) March 20, 2006

iOpus Software has released Version 5 of iMacros, a unique family of HTML based WEB macro recorders that run on the Windows desktop or server and automate all web-related routine tasks.

The Web browser is probably the most frequently used software today, and many tasks are highly repetitious.

iMacros relieves the repetition of checking on the same sites every day, remembering passwords, submitting to search engines and testing web sites over and over. With Internet Macros, you record these tasks once and then let Internet Macros execute them whenever you need them.

Any combination of browsing, form filling, clicking, page navigation, upload, download, printing, saving and data extraction can be recorded into a macro. iMacros works by remote controlling the web browser. Thus it automatically supports advanced features such as Secure Socked Layer (SSL), HTTP-redirects, and cookies. Once a macro is created, it can run on any PC that has the iMacros software installed.

The PRO Edition features an easy-to-use command line interface, batch file support, and the ability to do web site response time measurements. The PRO Edition is the only software of its kind that supports websites with FLASH and JAVA applets and can switch between different web pages automatically with its tabbed browser interface.

The Scripting Edition is designed for use by web professionals and people responsible for website testing. Performing functions normally found in applications costing thousands of dollars, the Scripting Edition is an affordable alternative to big name capture/replay testing tools. It includes all of the functionality of the PRO Edition, plus an easy-to-use scripting interface that extends the popular Windows Scripting Host with the ability to replay macros and extract web page data. Users can also access this interface from Visual Basic, Excel, Access, Perl, the new Microsoft .NET languages or any other Windows programming language. The users can work in their favorite development enviroment and do not have to learn yet another proprietary programming language. The Scripting Edition includes the free iMacros Player, so scripts and macros can be provided to third parties at no extra charge.

iMacros runs on Windows 2000, XP and Windows 2003.

iMacros Power Surfer Edition costs $ 29.95(US). The PRO Edition costs $ 199, and the Scripting Edition is priced at $ 499 for a single user license. Multi-user and site licenses are available. You can purchase iMacros securely online at, or download a free 30-day trial version from the same address.
