Screen Scraping Web Tools

In order to use data that is found on websites more efficiently, there are screen scraping web tools that have been developed that can find information based on a set of parameters or requirements and then take that information and convert it into a text or spreadsheet format. This makes any endeavor requiring internet information much easier than by using manual browser tools. There are several specialized screen scraping web tools available for sale and some limited ones can be found as shareware or freeware. Each has a unique set of features and options for different needs. Some of these tools are better for text while others work better for phone numbers or email.
