There are... they just don't ship with AutoIT. Look in the Examples forum.

there is Chrome UDF but I suggest you to use IE because in Chrome you will need to add an Addon to automate and it's a little complicated, however in IE you can automate without any addon.

You can also use IUIAutomation which can automate almost every browser, if you don't need as low-level access to the browser.

@anthonyjr2 Not sure what you mean with "low-level access to the browser". With IUIAutomation i can reach any addressbar of any browser and as I can type anything I want I can do: 

javascript:x:=someFunc();alert(x);function somefunc(){ return ... };void(0);

and if you want it real sophisticated you can insert javascript elements to the DOM thru addressbar and reach full DOM / HTML thru the addressbar

So with browsers (Opera, IE11, Edge, Chrome, Firefox) no limitations from AutoIt and also no need to reach thru Selenium/WebDriver your browser functionalities

Sorry, I was a little unclear. I meant that the dedicated Chrome/IE UDFs have functions that do most of the work for you. I'm aware that all of it can be done with IUIAutomation as well.
