Image from store Web Scraper - Free Web Scraping
Description from store Free and easy to use web data extraction tool for everyone. With a simple point-and-click interface, the ability to extract thousands of records from a website takes only a few minutes of scraper setup. Web Scraper utilizes a modular structure that is made of selectors, which instruct the scraper on how to traverse the target site and what data to extract. Thanks to this structure, data mining from modern and dynamic websites such as Amazon, Tripadvisor, eBay, as well as from lesser-known sites is effortless. Data extraction is run on your browser and doesn’t require anything to be installed on your computer. You don't need Python, PHP, or JavaScript coding experience to start scraping. Additionally, it is possible to completely automate data extraction in Web Scraper Cloud. Once the data is scraped, download it as a CSV or XLSX file that can be further imported into Excel, Google Sheets, etc. Features Web Scraper is a simple web scraping tool that allows you to use many advanced features to get the exact information you are looking for. It offers features like: * Data scraping from multiple pages; * Multiple data extraction types (text, images, URL’s, and more); * Scraping data from dynamic pages (JavaScript + AJAX, infinite scroll); * Browsing scraped data; * Exporting scraped data from a website to Excel; It is dependent only on the web browser; therefore, no extra software needed for you to start scraping. How to begin scraping? There are only a couple of steps you will need to learn in order to master web scraping: 1. Install the extension and open the Web Scraper tab in developer tools (which has to be placed at the bottom of the screen); 2. Create a new sitemap; 3. Add data extraction selectors to the sitemap; 4. Lastly, launch the scraper and export scraped data. It’s as easy as that! What can Web Scraper be used for? * Lead generation - email, phone number, other contact detail related data mining from various websites; * E-commerce - product data extraction, product price scraping, description, URL extraction, image retrieving, etc; * Website content crawling - extract information from news portals, blogs, forums and so on; * Retail monitoring - monitor product performance, competitor or supplier stock and pricing, etc; * Brand monitoring - product review, social content crawling for sentiment analysis; * Business intelligence - gather data for key business decisions, learn from your competitors; * Big data extraction for machine learning, marketing, business strategy developments, researches; * And much more.

  • (2023-11-10) M Mawuru: Never worked for me. After install it comes up with warning errors and does not even present the console you are supposed to see. I tried to install the latest browser of Chrome many times and ended up wasting too much time instead of saving time with this tool.
  • (2023-10-30) Thanh Nga: It's a great extension: Free, useful & easy to use.

  • (2023-10-16) Roman Zykov: Great tool. It's worth to read their help pages before starting scraping
  • (2023-09-14) Wayne Swart: I have been looking at quite a lot of web scrapers and even considered writing my own, until I found this extension. At first I tried to figure it out on my own, but I would suggest watching the video tutorials in order to see how to use it properly. I can highly recommend this extension! Does the job extremely well!
  • (2023-09-04) shukui ma: 试用了一段时间,还是或多或少有些bug,官网论坛里也有很多人讨论issue问题,总结:简单少量爬取,确实是方便快捷的利器,大数据量或复杂逻辑爬取,还是用python吧。 定制数据采集,可V我:493882434

  • (2023-08-17) Aitor wiii: Buena herramienta, intuitiva de utilizar. Al principio, un poco díficil si no tienes conocimientos de etiquetas, selectores CSS/HTML etc, pero puedes aprender en su página web en la sección de "Tutoriales" y "documentacion" donde podrás aprender con ejemplos prácticos y con ejemplos de páginas web como funciona. Tiene una parte gratuita y otra de pago. Con la parte gratuita, estoy podiendo hacer lo que otras "empresas" a las que les pagas no te dan los datos "correctos". Además, que lo puedes configurar a tu gusto y si hay algo que no sabes, siempre puedes ir al "foro" a preguntar. Yo lo hice, y gracias a ello he aprendido nuevas cosas para la herramienta, que ahora me permite hacer todo lo que queria hacer en cantidades de extracción de datos y "automatico" sin necesidad de estar horas con robots de python haciendo lo mismo con una calidad inferior en un 50-80%. PD: Se salta buenas protecciones de ciertas páginas web si lo sabes configurar. Os lo recomiendo, ya que llevaba bastante tiempo probando y buscando herramientas de pago y gratuitas y sin duda no me arrepiento de haber encontrado esta :)
  • (2023-08-09) Kesiah: It does not scrape everything... pagination is okay but not reliable. I scrape for company and open jobs but the result was incomplete. Company shows but with no result on open jobs and vice versa. I have to manually checked them again.

  • (2023-07-21) Vasilis: I am an eCommerce intern tasked with finding a scalable webscraping solution, because the current process was manual! This tool saved me hours of manual and tedious work. Amazing product, easy to navigate and applicable across websites. Keep up the good work, and please keep this extension alive! The fact it exports cleaned content into excel and csv is a game changer!
  • (2023-07-10) Coraline Ribière: We used it last month to scrap a website and it work very well. We tried to use it again today for an other website and it was impossible to select any elements or launch anything. Seems there is a big mess with the new version. I hope this will be fixed soon
  • (2023-07-10) Talyah Alnatour: Would be a lifesaver but I keep getting this error preventing me from proceeding. FAILED_TO_CONNECT_TO_CHROME_TAB {"message":"Could not establish connection. Receiving end does not exist."} Anyone have this issue?
  • (2023-07-06) aBillBook: Extension is very nice, was working well for me, using it from last 4,5 years but from last update which was released on July 4th 2023, not able to get the email id from the link. Any suggestion to resolve the issue is highly appreciable.
  • (2023-06-30) Mohsin: extremely confusing
  • (2023-06-28) Amelda Shaw: Lacks some functionality but is excellent
  • (2023-06-16) Ahmet Erkam: I'm using this plug-in for years. It is very useful.
  • (2023-06-15) Dmitry Dolgikh: Прекрасно. То, что нужно
  • (2023-05-23) Hassan Zhang: Is anyone also meet this problem? why I get info like this <[email protected]> when I try to get email address from a web. Thanks
  • (2023-05-17) Alexander Paluch: Once I went through the basic tutorials, the tool was simple to use and highly effective.The plugin is great. I was able to scrape thousands of pages reliably with it. You only need a minimum of CSS knowledge to get started, a lot of the scraper config works with no-code and clicking the elements you want from a website. What is very nice: once you don't want to scrape on your desktop anymore, you can switch to a SaaS version - and immediately get started by taking over your configuration files from the browser (the sitemaps). The support at webscraper.IO has been excellent and helped me solve several problems quite fast (response time with a fix sometimes within minutes). Highly recommeded!
  • (2023-05-13) David Garry: Loved using this extension, after a recent update, it seems that clicking download as CSV has gone from being an instant process to an infinite loop of "generating" without ever downloading. :/ Will update review back to 5 stars when it is fixed.
  • (2023-05-12) Nithin srinivas Singh: This extension was working fine till updated, but now its not working exactly like before, after visiting product page link, its not extracting the data and not moving into another product page link
  • (2023-05-10) Edith Karuna: This was working great until the update a few days ago. I can no longer run multiple scrapes at one time. Please replace this functionality. & the "Scraping will start in a new tab. Once scraping is complete, this window will close." tab is completely unnecessary.
  • (2023-05-08) Jordan O: Its so helpful thank! I think its stopped working since you updated it today? Can this be looked into please?
  • (2023-04-28) Jakub Novák: amazing!
  • (2023-04-16) Alex Hutton: Very nice tool. I am scraping data multiple pages deep quite successfully (eg. I am selecting links on a "contents" page and the tool follows the links and records the specific data I want from deeper pages). It helps if you know how to use CSS Selectors. I am a programmer and I could write something in a couple of afternoons to do what I want at a basic level, but this tool allowed me to create the scraper very quickly and simply. In my usage pattern, I run the scraper weekly (to collect property sales data), export the data as a csv then import it into a google sheet (which allows appending). Works extremely well. The visual element selector allows you to quickly see what the CSS selectors are picking up. The website I'm scraping recently changed some of their HTML code, breaking one of the selectors, but in a few minutes I used this tool to identify what had changed and I could easily fix the problem. Thank you for your work guys! Also, the paid version lets you run the scraper in the cloud (like if you want to schedule it to run automatically). I haven't had a need to use this, I can do what I want quite well with the free version. People who are scraping for businesses purposes and who have multiple sites they need to regularly scrape would likely benefit from the paid version. One other thing, I had the sitemap (the definition of all the selectors for the scraper) on my work computer and I needed to transfer it to my personal computer. The tool's sitemap export allowed me to easily export and then re-import on the other computer! Great tool!

  • (2023-03-08) Rafsan Jane: This is really the best tool I have ever seen. Noob people can not use it, to utilize it properly you have to be skilled. Just a few problems I found are that some websites have high protection to stop scrapping, This tool sometimes does not run for those sites. But maximum site it works fine. Love it. Love this team Thanks a lot. (It took me a long time to understand how this tool really works. XPath, HTML + CSS, a Few days ago also notice jQuery knowledge also help me to use it advanced)
  • (2023-03-07) Alamgir Hossain: just waste of time.
  • (2023-03-06) Philipp Kowalski: Completely useless piece of sofware. Might work on easy example sites that the dev has built, definitely does not work on complex sites or web 2.0 pages or social media. What a waste of time.
