4.Download Files

The software supports downloading files during the scraping process. The file types include: Image, Audio, Video, Document, and Other files. Users can choose a storage path, and create separate folders or rename downloaded files.

5.Speed Boost

Speed Boost can accelerate tasks. The acceleration effect is related to the loading speed of the web page and the setting of the task. It can usually achieve 3 to 10 times the acceleration effect.

6. Data Deduplication

Data Deduplication refers to filtering out duplicate data that may be encountered during the task scraping process, leaving only valid data. Data Deduplication needs to scrape all the data before it is filtered. Therefore, turning on this function will cause the scraping speed to be slow.

7. Developer

ScrapeStorm supports the Webhook function. By using this function, scraped data can be published to HTTP.
