Does anyone know of a way to pull up around 40 websites quickly without clicking around a billion times?

I'm looking for something that will work like a feed reader, but not a feed reader since their feeds limit the amount of simultaneous connections.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Take a look at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2324 Session manager for Firefox, or which browser are using?

Write a script? I am pretty sure it can be done for MSIE but not sure about Firefox or another browser.

I haven't tried THIS METHOD but it may work for you.

What are you trying to accomplish?

My initial thought is something that'll download the site and the cache it in a local directory, sort of like the old active desktop subscription, but I'm kind of puzzled as to what you're trying to do.

I have about 40 domains I need to actively monitor and fix.

I was just thinking it would be fine to have them all be able to open at once very quickly (yeah I could open 40 tabs, but damn that's a lot of tabs).

Thanks for the responses.

no doubt. I'd wonder what sort of resources you'd kill by doing that though and that many tabs seems pretty cumbersome to manage.

I suppose if you wanted to, you could write you own page stored locally on your machine and put say 4 or 9 of them in frames.

Is content (assuming you're just watching content) pushed through some sort of change request process? Is so, I'd think just keeping an eye there would help some.

If you literally want to open 40 tabs (websites) for example in MSIE it can be done real easily using a script as I mentioned earlier.

Try something like this. Copy and paste the following code into Notepad:

Code:
set ie = createobject("internetexplorer.application")
ie.navigate "http://www.canon.com"
set ie = createobject("internetexplorer.application")
ie.navigate "http://www.bearblain.com"
set ie = createobject("internetexplorer.application")
ie.navigate "http://www.yahoo.com"
set ie = createobject("internetexplorer.application")
ie.navigate "http://www.hp.com"
set ie = createobject("internetexplorer.application")
ie.navigate "http://www.google.com"


Click File and Save As and name the file Open Sites.vbs Just be sure to add the .vbs extension. Save the file to your desktop. Double click the file to run it. The example I have 5 sites listed. I have no clue how much 40 will tax the system but looking at the code you can see there isn't much to it.

Firefox: Just make a folder of bookmarks, then right click, open all in tabs.

Now that is slick and works in FF and MSIE.

And I found a better solution!

iMacros automates this task very well.

Thanks for all the responses.
