Anyone use Jiffy?  It's an IE plugin which can automate actions and I need it to login into one of my sites and perform some actions.  You basically write a script for the engine and it does it's thing.  Problem is, I can't find it on the web because everyone and their brother uses the word "jiffy" to talk about things happening quickly.

Anyone know where I can get the plugin?

well i spent 30 minutes looking and looking and either i'm just not smart enough to sidestep jiffy biscuit mix and jiffy lube links, or maybe you spelled it wrong or something. closest i found that might somehow be in the same universe as this is jifty, with a t, which looks like some kind of scripting language based off perl i think.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

How did you hear about it? I tried some different search techniques with nothing promising:
IE plugin jiffy -"in a jiffy" -"jiffy lube"
Regexp | Unicode Article | Letter Database
/\A(e)?((1)?ff(?:(?:ig)?y)?|f(?:ig)?)\z/

I'm almost wondering if it was developed in-house.  I can't find anything.

Doesn't really seem like it.  Anyone else?
