Nancy,
You did a very nice job with the screencast of the iMacros tool. I was impressed with how easy it was to use it and how fast it executed! Thanks. - David

Nancy,

Great screencast. I just installed it and created a macro to open tabbed pages of the sites where I usually get my news. Now instead of having three bookmarks, I only have one! :)

Hi, I am one of the iMacros developers. A user pointed me towards this page and I think the video is great!

Just one correction: The IE addon can also be downloaded directly from our website at http://www.iopus.com/download/imacros-ie/
and the Firefox add-on from
http://www.iopus.com/download/imacros-firefox/

We would like to embedded this video in our website. Is that possible? Please contact me to discuss.

Hi Nancy,

Great job! Your demo was very effective, and you have inspired me to use this tool. I realize that every time I log in to my computer, I pull up the same 3 tabs right away, and they all require logins (Gmail, Blackboard, Facebook). So now I want to create a macro!

Hi Nancy,
Thanks for sharing this tool. I'm all about shortcuts, but haven't explored using macros at all really. Your screencast is just the prompt I needed. Also, I enjoy hearing your voice. It's very calm and clear.
