I'll definitely have a look at your Samie. We do have (in production for more than a year) a similar VB solution, but I'd of course prefer a Perl one.

What we have is a COM object that wraps the browser (actually up to four browser windows) and provides similar methods like Samie. Then there is a service that loads the data and commands from database, instantiates the COM object and drives it through the pages. At times it's pretty slow, especialy if the site I need to work with is slow. Apart from running several instances of the service I don't see a way to work on several sites at once.

Did you try to run several Samies in several threads? How do you handle popup windows?
