this has got to be the coolest thing that I’ve ever seen.
why doesn’t Microsoft advertise stuff like this better?
looks like it is ‘Internet Explorer Only’.. that’s allright.. IE rocks, it’s my fave browser easily.
I was doing some interesting stuff with browser automation last job, a couple of times over the years I’ve really enjoyed using Visual Basic to automate Internet Explorer.
Fun times, all around.
