Fake is a new browser for OS X that makes web automation simple. Fake allows you to drag discrete browser actions into a graphical workflow that can be run again and again without human interaction. The Fake workflows you create can be saved, reopened, and shared. 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 webapps, including assertions. All of Fake's automation features are powered by OS X's native scripting tool, AppleScript, which means Fake can be used to incorporate web automation into many other OS X scripting tasks.
Fake's browser component is based on the same open source technology behind the popular OS X site-specific browser, Fluid. Fake's proprietary secret sauce is in its web automation capabilities: the Action library, and Workflow side pane.
