    Hi, there is one certain task that I need to be done everyday at a specific time on the web. This includes logging into a site, clicking a tab, selecting values from two drop down lists, entering a value to a text field and clicking a button. I'm just wondering if theres any way that I could automate this task to be done everyday at a specified time?

    You could try using the built in Automator app. to do that, but I think you are stretching the limits of what it can do. There is a feature where it can record mouse actions/clicks... maybe try that out.

    Thank you. I have never used Automator. I will give a try.

    For what thou wish Sikuli is the way...

    There is scripting/automation tool vastly more sophisticated than Automator for what you want to do: Sikuli. It can be configured to fire up browser, login, logout, scribble a book, watch and control a video, whatever. All it takes is some downloads ( and some Jython tinkering - then anything on your computer will do what you want when you want just like a real user.
