Website Macro

Is it possible to write a macro or script to do the following?

1. Go to a website URL
2. Input username and password and click the Login button
3. Click a Link to download an excel file

I'd search for web automated testing tools..

Watin, httpUnit, Fitnesse, etc. http://www.softwareqatest.com/qatweb1.html#FUNC

or if you are using Firefox - use iMacros - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/imacros-for-firefox/

nothing will be "point and click" unless you choose a nicer, paid-for package.
