Thanks to the author for providing this great plugin! Now indeed the machine time shown on the web page has changed. I hope this plugin can do better and better. Now I encounter a problem: the time/date of some web pages requires a pop-up box on the page. With the manual selection method, basically 99% of the selections will be invalid, eventually resulting in the form being unable to be submitted.
