What is the best free web data extraction software?

by NoraChoi / May 26, 2016 3:11 AM PDT

I want to know which web data extraction software is the best. I want a tool that can extract the data showed after you click a button on the web page or any data that not showed in the screen but can be found in the HTML source... If the tool is free, it would be better..

Any help would be really, really appreciated.

right clock inside IE you will see the code behind the website either by View Source or Inspect. Most web sites data is stored in a MySQL or MS SQL databases either on a different volume or a different server. The DB will have its' own security built in

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
