- In order to run persistent scripts that are independent of the lifetime of any page, AutoControl supports Background Scripts.
Additionally, triggers have the option to work even when the browser is closed.
[...] , which allows AutoControl to run persistently, even when no browser windows are open.
Thanks to this, a background script can run freely, without worrying that it might be inadvertently terminated when pages are unloaded and tabs closed due to the script's own actions or the user's.
MIght come handy, especially for those who won't be able to install/use AutoHotkey to automate Chrome (and probably other Chromium-based browsers like Microsofts Edge) within a corporate environment.
PS. Wasn't aware that fellow member @tadamm had already created a separate thread to 'promote' this useful browser extension posted [here] at 'Tipps & Tricks'. Thx mate
