Screen Scraper

See also Screen Scrape, Screen Scraping Software, ASP Screen Scraping, PHP Screen Scrape


A screen scraper is a software that retrieves or “scrapes” information off a variety of websites simultaneously. A quality screen scraping system is not limited to a single format, since data exists in a variety of forms.

With Mozenda screen scrapers you can turn any website into your own personal database.



Why Mozenda?

Mozenda is a software tool that enables anyone to become a web archaeologist, digging and extracting information from the web. With Mozenda you can quickly set up and retrieve information from any website almost completely or in parts. For those who know what they are looking for and the value of the information they receive, Mozenda is a priceless tool in their technology backpack.

The Mozenda Advantage

Unlike other parsing or wrapper based web data extraction software, Mozenda uses browser rendering technology which allows the Mozenda application to look and behave like a web browser, but act like a web scraper. There are multiple benefits to this approach:

  • Mozenda loads pages and navigates pages just like a browser.
  • Mozenda can click and activate any item on a web page and wait for it to load.
  • Mozenda can easily navigate through sub-pages.
  • Mozenda handles AJAX and Javascript without problems.
  • With Mozenda you only have to set up the navigation and capture action once and it will replicate across pages and categories.
