First created in 2001 by Mathias Roth, iMacros was the first macro recorder tool specifically designed and optimized for web browsers and form filling. In April 2012 iMacros was acquired by Ipswitch.
Along with the freeware version, iMacros is available as a proprietary commercial application, with additional features and support for web scripting, web scraping, internet server monitoring, and web testing. In addition to working with HTML pages, the commercial editions can automate Adobe Flash, Adobe Flex, Silverlight, and Java applets by using Directscreen and image recognition technology. The freeware version of iMacros contains no control flow statements and with a few minor exceptions, complex or conditional code requires scripting available only in the commercial version.
Advanced versions also contain a command-line interface and an application programming interface (API) to automate more complicated tasks and integrate with other programs or scripts. The iMacros API is called the Scripting Interface. The Scripting Interface of the iMacros Scripting Edition is designed as a Component Object Model (COM) object and allows the user to remotely control (script) the iMacros Browser, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome from any Windows programming or scripting language.
