      Auto Text Expander for Google Chrome vs AutoHotkey opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Auto Text Expander for Google Chrome is still a legitimate alternative to AutoHotkey, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      AutoHotKey is a *full* programming language designed to automate, replicate, and add logic to any WIMP action: it can be used to build whole Windows applications complete with menus, dialog boxes, mouse handling, and access to multimedia and webcam. It is not just a way to enter long strings with three keystrokes!

      Text expander practically just gives you a universal autocorrect with a personal autocorrect dictionary, nowhere close to the features of AutoHotKey which allows for tons of custom shortcuts to do things like press two keys to input a bunch of specific inputs, make every left click also a right click, to tons of other things.
