#2- Instant Data Scraper

Extension description:

Instant Data Scraper extracts data from web pages and exports it as Excel or CSV files.
Instant Data Scraper is an automated data extraction tool for any website. It uses AI to predict what data is most relevant on an HTML page and allows you to save it to an Excel or CSV file (XLS, XLSX, CSV).

This tool does not require website-specific scripts, but uses AI heuristic analysis of the HTML structure to detect the data to extract. If the prediction is not satisfactory, it allows the user to customize the selections for greater accuracy. This type of scrape technology is much more convenient, because it does not require large libraries of user-created scrape scripts, which are often filled with obsolete and redundant versions. This means that our scrape method works just as well with small, lesser-known websites as it does with global giants like Amazon. Plus, our users don't need to have any coding, json or xml knowledge!

Instant Data Scraper features:
* Data detection for extraction with AI.
* Detection of dynamic data when it has been loaded.
* Customization of delay and timeout for desired crawl speed.
* Support for pagination on web sites.
* Automatic navigation to the next page via buttons or links.
* Support for infinite scroll.
* Preview of extracted data with copy and paste support.
* Data export to Excel spreadsheet or CSV file.
* Rename and filter extracted data columns.

This extension is completely FREE. Instant Data Scraper works well in unison with SEO tools, CRM recruiting systems, sales lead management tools or email marketing campaigns. Web scraping and data downloading is made easy with our tool. Plus, you have data security and privacy as scraped data does not leave your browser.

Instant Data Scraper USE CASES:
* Lead generation for companies and freelancers.
* Growth hackers looking for easy ways to collect data.
* Recruiters looking for job candidates.
* Obtaining search engine results.
* Obtaining product pricing data from e-commerce websites.
* Amazon sellers, distributors and review analysts.
* Obtain email and directory addresses and phone numbers.
* Get contact information from professional association websites.
* Collect reviews and ratings.
* Analyze posts for likes, comments, connection and contacts.
* Extract emails and IDs from social network profiles.
Developer's promise: This extension does not contain any malware or spyware beyond the standard Google Analytics.
