One of many ChatGPT Plugins is Scraper. Listed below are my impressions about it.
Whereas it’s unsure how nicely it may possibly – we’d like extra testing – it exhibits a good diploma of Web entry in comparison with different plugins.
Not like many scrapers, it is not going to entry pages the place you’re logged in. So it’s not an choice to apply it to a LinkedIn search. Nonetheless, it did entry a dynamic web page – Google search outcomes – and produced them, in the identical order that I had encountered:
