With this release, the youngest member of the iMacros add-on family continues to play catch up with its older siblings and adds support for the following features:

EVENT mode provides a different way for iMacros to automate web elements that the conventional TAG command may have difficulties with, for example:

  • Sliders
  • Tricky date controls
  • Dynamic drop-down boxes
  • Drag & Drop

Users who are already familiar with CSS syntax may find the new CSS selector support for the TAG command to be beneficial. Now it is possible to specify a CSS selector expression in the SELECTOR parameter of the TAG command for identifying an element on the page. It is also possible to record this way by enabling “Use CSS selectors” in the recording options.

As Google Chrome continues to dominate the browser space, we will continue to improve iMacros for Chrome to make it as robust and feature-rich as the more mature iMacros add-ons for Firefox and IE. Here is a brief list of some of the commands that have been added to iMacros for Chrome over the past year or so:

  • IMAGESEARCH (requires commercial license)
  • SIZE
