Macro recorders work by measuring mouse motion and capturing click
locations, or by recording the control IDs of the clicked windows.  The
former is sensitive to changing window locations, the latter to application

Sikuli works by using image analysis to locate the regions on the screen to
be tickled.  It's a novel idea, although others have correctly pointed out
that it's not the most efficient way to automate applications.
