FMiner is another data extraction tool which has been on the market already for 5 years. Let’s see what features allow it to survive in the tough competitive struggle we have in the web scraping world.
The A1 scraper by Microsys is a program that is mainly used to scrape websites to extract data in large quantities for later use in webservices. The scraper works to extract text, URLs etc., using multiple Regexes and saving the output into a CSV file. This tool is can be compared with other web harvesting and web scraping services.
OutWit Hub is a software providing simple data extraction without requiring any programming skills or advanced technical knowledge. What impressed me about Outwit Hub is its general approach to data gathering: harvest everything (links, text, images, etc.) and, then, let the user choose what is needed (sift by scrapers). The program is apt to browse over links on pages, so this feature works well if multiple chains web scraping is required.
