  1. Hi, have you tried iMacro add-on for Chrome? If so, how do you get the macros to display so you can select them for 'play' or 'play loop'?

    From the wiki on it, I can see I am supposed to have them saved as bookmarks. But I have no idea how to do that.

    Please get back to me if you have any ideas.
