Webscraper version 4 released

Webscraper from PeacockMedia makes it quick and easy to extract data from a website.

It has some 'simple setup' options if you simply want to archive content or collect certain meta data. For more complex tasks you can add columns to your output file which extract data based on certain class or id, or even by regular expression (regex). (A tutorial is here).

version 4 is now released which has been updated to use the Integrity v8 engine. That makes some efficiency improvements, and allows better control if you need to limit the requests that WS makes to your server:

The app has a very modest price tag of $10 and you can use it for free to test whether it works for you.
