WAIT : random suggestion

Post by jafuli » Wed Mar 21, 2012 4:29 pm

The WAIT action is useful but uses a fixed value ...
It could be interesting to be able to set the WAIT value to a random value (like, select random or fixed, if random, you select the MIN and MAX, in millisecond).

a few seconds of coding, a small improvement :)

some websites react badly when you scrape them with a very regular pattern. It's just some kind of camouflage.

Here you go ;) . Just import this into whatever project you need it and use a Execute Actions Tree -> RandomWait action instead of a Wait one.
