  • (2023-11-18) TOMMY BUSSEY: i have been looking for this exact web scraper functionality for awhile now and i have tested at least 10 other extensions none of which were what i needed nor were any of them accurately describing their app in the chrome store, this extension had a listing that actually held true and that is rare in this day and age, plus it's super easy to use and works exactly as i needed so thanks to the devs that built this and the UI folks too :)
  • (2023-10-30) Laurentiu Stefan: It saved much time, and helped me a lot. Great extension guys!
  • (2023-10-07) Katie Claessens: It looks like an awesome free option. I had it scrape from a directory where a business name was listed on the top line, then the contact at that business, then the contact's title, then the street address, then the city, state and zip, then the phone number. Each business was listed in a box of its own, one record after the other, on a VERY long scrolling page. Unfortunately, the only things it could recognize separately was the business name at the top line and the line with the city, state and zip on it. I ended up just having it select each business's whole block of data and downloading that as one record in each cell in a CSV file and then used Excel's "Text To Columns" tool to separate the data. Fortunately, the data came with a backslash in between each of the lines of data so that made it easier. I tried the method their video shows you how to do where, if it's not accurate selecting the right set of data, you can change the coding in the top left corner but, I could not figure out which part of the code to delete. Too complicated. But, at least I was able to get my data off the site.
  • (2023-08-28) Eche Treasures: Very Good Product! One to keep in my arsenal!
  • (2023-07-26) cathome phuket: works for simple pages, but torturous when slightly complicated tasks.
  • (2023-07-24) Frantz Pinard: The application is good. Takes a bit of time getting used to but the communication support is sub-par. Not the best feeling signing up for tier that includes chat-support, especially for someone who is not necessarily tech-saavy and getting minimal interaction. This needs to be improved.
  • (2023-07-23) Pham Khoa: This scraper tool is my favorite among the tools of its kind, thank you.
  • (2023-07-19) Muhammad Khan: Love it! Easy to use!!! Thanks for the new updates and addition.
  • (2023-07-19) Alekhya Das: not free?
  • (2023-06-08) Dexter Gillette: If it wasn't advertised as free, I'd give it 4-5 stars because it works extremely well. You get 100 credits to start learning and once you use them, your balance of remaining credits remains at zero which means everything you set up will not work again unless you subscribe. The cheapest tier is $35/month or over $400/year. Far from free. I'd increase the rating if they offered a limited entry tier @ $5/month.
  • (2023-05-10) Cameron Mays: Just works so well
  • (2023-05-09) David Piñeros: Increible, por lo que puede hacer. Todo muy fácil y sin código
  • (2023-05-08) OPEC MB24H: Very good!!!
  • (2023-05-07) Weaam Bakfalouni: Thanks that what I was looking for, simple and effective
  • (2023-04-13) Idris Idriszade: I stumbled upon this Chrome extension for web scraping, and wow, it's a game-changer! User-friendly and intuitive, it turns web scraping into a breeze. The interface is a delight, and the performance is top-notch. A must-try for both newbies and pros!
  • (2023-04-13) Eric Sanchez: Like
  • (2023-04-06) Ipa Stor: Great app, easy powerful, with great documentation
  • (2023-04-03) david palanuk: I was pleasantly surprised to go through the process of selecting a l*nked*n job search results scraper recipe from the 'recipe' store in the extensions dashboard, copy and paste my personally tailored and filtered l*nked*n job search results page url into the recipe provided, select the number of pages to scrape and the columns of data properties to capture, and even install another 3rd party extension that was required to obtain the l*nked*n cookies array necessary to scrape behind the login (which most tools require a premium subscriber license in order to scrape behind login webpages), and actually be able to download the scraped results into a .csv file without the annoying 'want to see the results? Just pay us money to see your file!' It was truly free from start to finish, a very difficult thing to achieve these days when dealing with capturing data from l*nked*n...any recruiter and / or sales development or market research, b2b lead gen, marketing, digital, social, or any other role / title is well aware of by this point. We'll see how long it lasts, but so far, i absolutely give credit where credit is due. Thanks SimpleScraper. You've blown me away.
  • (2023-03-29) Sachin Mistry: Very fast and intuitive scraper. Saves a lot of time and effort!!
  • (2023-02-28) Square Bet: Simple Intuitive and Fast
  • (2023-02-03) Hristo Gyoshev: This scraper is advertised as free, but certain features, which are NOT clearly identified upfront, require a paid subscription to use on an ongoing basis. For me, that became clear only after I spent a ton of time figuring out how to use it, which was hard and frustrating. I find this highly misleading and would not recommend this scraper.
  • (2023-01-28) Rabbi Hasan: Good
  • (2023-01-26) 2.5M views: Great Tool
  • (2023-01-23) Edgardo J Arrieta: Once I had the list of URL's it was seamless.
  • (2023-01-22) Mhamed Hanafi: thank you! very useful.
  • (2023-01-04) Pat MySecret: Doesn't look at all Simple like the images on the net convey. This may be a good tool for something, but the title (extension name) doesn't convey it, and the Recipe name thing is confusing.
  • (2022-12-13) Saleem Thupsee Technologies: Awesome Starting to test for my TV Program Guide Which include 200 channels to get my favorite program. Will Share receipe soon !
  • (2022-12-12) Businessman yakoob: زفت

  • (2022-10-12) Hon Jia Xuan: Exactly the tool I wanted!

  • (2022-08-31) George Joubran: Amazing product, got exactly what I wanted with ease
  • (2022-08-31) Mian Waqas: Excellent product
  • (2022-08-29) amr mamdouh: not Working !!
  • (2022-03-17) coffee Phillips: Fast but does not work for dynamic content scraping and pagination with fixed numbers... better to tell it on the description. Asked to pay but few features to try out.
  • (2022-03-15) Jonathan Kim: Most intuitive and easy to use scraper that I have come across. No instructions or instructional videos necessary to watch because it's that easy. I had a problem with one of my scrapers and I emailed Mike and he made a custom video to show me how to fix it, amazing!
  • (2022-03-14) IL: Works well for instagram giveaway / EDIT: I switched to 4/5* because it broke and now can't select names separately from batch of comments (it selects the whole paragraph with comment and name, only comment OR nothing at all). Pls fix so each linked instagram name in the comment, in the selected comment box, can be scraped separately from comment written.. until then 4/5.
  • (2022-03-14) Michael Schmitz: This is better than crack
  • (2022-03-11) Abe L: I can't believe I used to live life without this beauty.

  • (2022-02-26) Nyarlathotep: работает, все просто и понятно. есть интеграции. но! работает напрямую, т.е. некоторые сайты не могут отдать данные, хотя они и видны без скриптов ;)
  • (2022-02-13) Jeffy Y: Need more time to align data after scraping. Also, calling it free in the title is misleading!
  • (2022-02-12) Diego Campanella: amazing!
  • (2022-02-04) michael chun: Thu thập dữ liệu biểu mẫu không chính xác
  • (2022-01-27) monichel lam: Don't work on deep scraping. Cells are not well aligned when some values are missing. Do come back to revise the review when such features are enhanced.
  • (2022-01-14) Daniel Roy: Excellent product and excellent support.
  • (2022-01-13) Hannah Wiginton: Awesome way to quickly grab bulk information from any website. Works like it should almost every time!

    I really liked the application, but on the Youtube service it retrieves the wrong links. For example, on the Videos tab, we extract links pointing to the name of the video, and after extraction, activating any of them opens the Home tab, although the video playback page should open. If possible, fix this problem, please!
