Web scraping is the process of retrieving a web page and extracting information from it. Fetching is the process of downloading a webpage (which a browser does when a user views a page). To fetch documents for later processing, web crawling is a key component of web scraping.

Web scrapers are divided into two categories: browser extensions and computer applications. Browser extensions are app-like apps that you may install on your browsers like Google Chrome or Firefox. Themes, ad blockers, messaging extensions, and other browser extensions are all popular.

There are many benefits of using web scrapers. They help you gather data from various websites, especially those that have not been designed with this in mind. They also help you find information that is not readily available on the internet, and they make it easy for you to create reports on your findings.
