What is the best tool to extract data from a website?

I'm looking for a tool that can extract headlines, abstracts, authors, etc. I was impressed with kimono labs, but then it got acquired by Palantir.

    Import.io

    Scrape the web, sans manual scripting

    Import is slick. Use its WYSWYG editor to select elements of the page/site you want to track and it'll turn it into an API you can use elsewhere.

    It's not perfectly intuitive but it's always my go-to for scraping when I don't/can't write a script.

    Page.REST allows you to extract page titles, description, open graph data or any content on page using CSS selectors. You get a JSON response which can be consumed or integrated by many other tools. (Disclaimer: I'm the creator)

    Google Spreadsheets
    Just use ImportXML in Google Spreadsheet. Works great if you are not importing too much data. On top of that you get the power of being inside a spreadsheet already. And..it's free!

    I still have the Chrome extension and desktop app if you would want to use it. I can easily share it with you, just let me know.
