Which browser to work with AutoIt

22 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone ,
                           I am really confused right now about which browser to choose to work with AutoIt. I have been using IE but honestly, IE crashes more often and is not really as customized as any other browsers out there. So here are my questions.
1. which browser to choose ? (e.g: firefox, chrome, etc)

2.why?

That's it .

Would like to here everyone's detailed suggestions, so as to make a really good decision.

Thank you All.

Hehe .. There is nothing wrong with my computer. its just that when ever my script goes over more than 2 hours of usage of IE it crashes.

But, Thank you for your views on the topic, will keep in mind.

What makes you sure that the same problem will not arise with FireFox or Chrome?

Good question, I don't know and that is why I am asking the question here before trying it for myself and wasting my time learning everything. Mostly, someone or the other might have worked with it and they can show their generosity by sharing their views, so that I can take a decision.

Thank you

I would first try to find the cause of the crash. "Running for 2 hours" sounds like you are running the script in a loop. There might be a memory leak causing the crash.
Which error message do you get when your script crashes?

Can you post your script so we might have a look at it?

Yes, I am running the script in a loop. Sorry I cant share the script. But, probably the cause is due to cache memory, i.e. what I think. the script includes constantly opening webpages, and the loop runs for almost 2k times and maybe the cache is the cause.

And I don't get any error message, the script just waits for the web page to load and exits. Meanwhile, internet explorer stops working and windows ask me to debug the IE or close IE.

Check the memory consumption while running. Maybe you need to release some ressources after each loop.

Why automate? Just start the Task-Manager and then your script and watch how memory consumption increases.

All browsers are fine. See ff.au3 chrome.au3 ie.au3

Generic iuiautomation in examples section can deal with safari to.

Check if you cannot use inetget functions.

No need to Fix your computer, just use Firefox.

Details: all others are simply a right royal pain in the arse to use ... especially IE.

Whenever I run my script I close the applications first run ccleaner and then run my script and I leave. I return back to my system after couple of hours. That is why I want a solution to this problem in a way that I don't have to do anything manually.
