RoboBrowser
Scrape the web while browsing

This one a webkit powered browser which built for web scraping purposes.
It loads requested webpage, saves page source to disk, and sends it's path
to php script as first parameter. You have to write your own script to
collect data from each page. A sample included in application.

Application also supports javascript injection to loaded webpage to
automate clicks. you can use preloaded jquery framework to simulate
clicks and mouse events to create an headless setup.

Pros:
+ you can watch and take action when scraper stalled
+ solve captcha's yourself or enter your account credentials
when servers asked.
+ browse webpages like any regular visitor by using
all available web standards. servers can't tell the
difference you're a bot or human.

Cons:
- Kinda slow when compared to headless spiders
- Uses more system resources
- Not designed for headless execution

Known Issues:
- Due to a renderer bug in cef, scrollbars gone red.
It's only visual, doesn't affect the application behaviour.

- Sometimes application crashing while shutting down, you have
to terminate it manually from process manager in that case.

- If application won't start, make sure there is no any other
instances active and delete the contents of the "cache" folder

Might be useful while scraping results from highly secured
data sources such as search engines, live stock information
sports bet results etc.
