The latest version (V18.104.22.168) of WebHarvy Visual Web Scraper is available for download. The changes in this update are :
- New option: ‘Capture following text’ added in capture form.
- Web Miner has been improved to handle even HTML errors of target websites.
- Allows exporting scraped data while mining is paused.
- For CSV, TSV exports, column names are added as the first row.
- Option to input keywords in CSV format.
- Option to manually set page load timeout value in application settings.
The ‘Capture following text’ feature helps to scrape text following a given heading within the page. This feature is useful when data to be scraped does not occur at a fixed position within the page, but is guaranteed to follow a heading text (Example ‘Product Details:‘ or ‘Specification‘).
The option to manually set the page load timeout value from settings window helps to scrape data from websites with slow response times or from those which employ AJAX.
We recommend that you download and try the 15 days free evaluation version.
WebHarvy Web Scraper allows you to scrape data from remote websites anonymously with the help of proxy servers. This prevents remote web servers from blocking / black listing your computer’s IP address.
WebHarvy provides you the option to specify either a single proxy server address or a list of proxy servers addresses through which the remote website will be scraped. In case you are providing a list of proxy server addresses, WebHarvy will cycle through the list in a periodic manner.

In most cases the data to be scraped is the result of performing a search operation from the main page of the website. Often it is required that you need to extract data from the search results for a list of input keywords.
The ‘Keyword Scraping’ feature of WebHarvy allows you to perform this task with ease. You can specify a list of input keywords and WebHarvy will automatically scrape data from the search results corresponding to each keyword in the specified list.

One of the major design goals which we had while developing WebHarvy is that users should be able scrape data from web sites with minimum amount of interaction with the software. That implies minimum amount of key press and mouse clicks.
So while you are trying to scrape a list of repeating data like name, address, email address, price etc from a web page, WebHarvy will not ask you whether you are trying to capture a single data item or a list of items, unlike other web data extraction software. If data repeats, WebHarvy will intelligently identify it.
