CNET Editors' review

Automating repetitive Firefox tasks is one way to save your fingers from undue stress. From a sidebar you can toggle on and off, you can run, record, and edit macros. Recording is as simple as pressing a button before starting and clicking another to stop. For more advanced tasks you can turn to a set of intimidating demos, but frankly, we found the Web site wiki and step-by-step tutorials far easier to follow.

While iMacros can theoretically be used to input passwords, we strongly recommend encrypting them and either saving your master password to Firefox or inputting it each time. Being able to save macros as bookmarks and being able to share them via e-mail and Delicious are great features, though we wish we could schedule the macros, including running one or to just after booting Firefox. We also wish we could run macros in the background while we worked on other browser tabs. It's a modest request, but without it, just plan to take a break whenever a lengthier macro runs.

    "best browser automation add-on!"

    October 13, 2012  |   By bestmacros

    Version: iMacros for Firefox 7.5.0.4

    Pros

    iMacros is the best browser automation add-on. I'm using it to create different type of automation like auto send messages on LinkedIn, Auto create Facebook notes, auto flag Craigslist ads, Auto comment and auto like on Flickr, Instagram and Twitter, reblog on Tumblr, create yahoo accounts, send emails with Gmail and many more.

    Cons

    "You might want to check out the Selenium IDE tool"

    October 3, 2008  |   By johnny_zebra

    Version: iMacros for Firefox 6.0.7.5

    Pros

    not finished reviewing it yet, but flash, silverlight and java interaction and testing would be an awesome thing to have, and being able to run it in IE and firefox is a big deal too

    Cons

    It would be nice if they had a more affordable consumer version

    Summary

    If your tasks are more involved, and you want to be alerted if there is something missing or not correct about a page before it proceeds to the next step, you may want to look into the free firefox plugin called Selenium IDE
    http://selenium.openqa.org/

    Selenium IDE is part of a full web page testing suite, but its great for recording all of your clicks, mousemoves, data input, multiple windows, verifying that certain elements and text are visible, page load times, etc. I've used it to record filling in online forms, taking surveys, setting up new devices, etc. The tests can be shared with other people, and there are even ways to run the tests in other browsers.

    "A great time saver!"

    June 20, 2007  |   By nycmark38

    Version: iMacros for Firefox 0.8.0.2

    Pros

    It is like a mixture of Roboform and Greasemonkey. It can automate logins, but it can do much more: After the login, it can navigate right to the page where I want to be. It also automates my daily standard searches, online banking and helps we uploading pictures to Flickr. It saves me about 1-2 hours PER DAY.
