https://www.webscraper.io/ and https://getdata.io/ are two of the bigger competitors in the space. Will be very interesting to see how these guys will handle pricing/marketing/features that contrast with the current paid scraping companies in the field. My personal recommendation would be to productize the underlying technology to make it more accessible for the average user. This could be either be marketing towards one specific customer profile (fashion, entrepreneurship, etc.) and providing demonstrable value in that regard (tracking price dips/inflated black friday prices) OR providing more powerful hooks for enterprise clients (zapier, google sheets, etc.).
I've used most of the big paid and free scraping tools on the internet for the companies that I've worked with and have high hopes for Amie! (If you guys don't know her, she has one of the best tech blogs on the internet.)
Tremendous product - comparable performance to many of the paid automatic scrapers out there on the market. Clean and intuitive UI/UX.
Onboarding docs need work. For a free product there's really not much more you can ask for.
*Detachable window/new tab.
*Auto forward pages & collect column data.
*Rearrange columns both vertically & horizontally.
*Should be able to delete specific items from a column.
Overall great product. My best wishes.
+ZERO experience needed, easy to use.
+Intelligent column identification & selection.
-Tool appears as overlay, hiding bottom page contents (including next page button !!😞 )
-Some false positives
