Recommended Posts

I would like to know on whether it is possible to open URL with Firefox / Chrome instead of IE within AutoIt.

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.google.com", 1

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Yes. If you only need to launch the website without further automation, then you can use the Run command with the appropriate parameters to launch the browser with a particular URL.

If you want to actually interact with the browser beyond just launching the website, then take a look at FAQ 31.

It seems that Chrome get latest version comparing to Firefox (End of Life), would Chrome support more latest features better than FireFox?

Furthermore, I would like to know on what command to open URL with Chrome browser instead of using _IECreate.

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.google.com", 1)

Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you very much for any suggestions (^v^)

There are lots of options. You can use the Chrome UDF. You can look in IUIAutomation. There's also the Webdriver UDF.

You could also stick with IE and take the time to figure out why your existing script isn't working.
