Automate Boring Web Interactions With Fake

Robots were put here on Earth to do our dirty work — tasks like repeatedly lifting unusually heavy objects, welding car parts together, crushing garbage and testing web applications.

Meet Fake, an automated browser for Mac OS X created by Todd Ditchendorf, the developer who previously brought you Fluid and Cruz.

From the product page:

Inspired by Apple’s Automator application, Fake looks like a combination of Safari and Automator and allows you to run (and re-run) “fake” interactions with the web.

Power Users will love Fake for automating tedious web tasks like filling out lengthy forms and capturing screenshots. Developers can use Fake for graphically configuring automated tests for their web apps, including assertions.

Like Ditchendorf’s other projects, Fake is based on WebKit and his own ParseKit. It uses AppleScript for the web automations. For now, it’s available as a time-limited demo that expires at the end of July.
