I'll polish this up in July

Some of you lot are wondering what this Tongclaw board is. You’ll find out soon enough. For now, you’ll be left with something I’ve just finished today called Clickrobot.

Clickrobot is a bookmarklet (a bookmark that does funky stuff) that is used for automating the clicking of elements on webpages. Clickrobot runs inside your web browser, and it allows you to get the computer to click a certain element on the webpage, a specified X amount of times.

Whatever you use Clickrobot for, is up to you. To fire up Clickrobot on any webpage, just open up the Clickrobot bookmark you’ve saved.

Example / Case Scenario

What if you want to find out the first answer someone posted on Quora?

Using Clickrobot, you would be able to have the computer automate clicking the more button for you, saving you loads of time, and the computer won’t crash as well.

Whatever usage you have for Clickrobot is up to you. You could use it find out how often people use a particular phrase in the answers using a simple Ctrl+F.
