Alternative to IE.au3 - Need some guidance


Recommended Posts

So this is the deal guys. I have a rather big script running in a company's lobby monitor that displays information gathered from 3 different websites, if exports the sites to text files every few seconds, filters what I want, compares it to the previous export and displays it in a gui.

...The thing is, as Internet Explorer is dying, the sites are no longer working properly with IE, meaning that I'm getting some random errors. To "fix" this I made another script that catches these errors, and relaunches the main script, but it's not pretty to randomly watch the monitor go black and after 30 seconds coming back up... I mean, its messy and it doesn't reflect how I generally work.

Having said this, I'm thinking about updating my script, or maybe do one from scratch using something else.

What should I use? Can someone point me in the right direction? Is there a good chrome/firefox/edge alternative to _IE functions?

Thx in advance

Take a look at @Danp2 's  webdriver-udf-w3c-compliant-version-04282021

In addition I suggest to have a look at the WebDriver pages in the  wiki :)
WebDriver can become quite complex and the wiki tries to shed some light at the subject.

Yeah, I'm swimming here... It's really different from _IE, I wish there were some examples of each function. But I'll get there in time... thx
