Computer runs task when it sees a word

Is there any programs out there that I can set my computer to run actions like close web browser or open web browser when a specific word is visible on screen?
The reason I ask this is cause me and a friend play this game on Facebook and when hes not on I hop on his account and let it run on a second Waterfox profile. The problem is when he gets back on and if I'm away it keeps booting him off the game for having 2 windows open for the game at the same time.
So what I was hoping for is that when he logs on the game if he could type lets say (closeme) then my computer would read that and close the browser.

Is there anything like this out there? Or is there any other way to do this?

Hi FootBallBat,

Welcome to Geeks To Go! :)

I am assuming that you and your friend are not under the same roof, right?

I can think of 2 things that you could do here:

1.) Close your browser when you step away from your computer.
2.) Install a remote access software such as TeamViewer or LogMeIn. I believe both offer free versions to non commercial users. That way he can access your computer from afar to close the browser when needed.
