    With advances in web development, web scraping has become more difficult than it used to be. Learn how to scrape data with Python and Selenium when emerging technology and other factors prevent standard scraping in this valuable tutorial.

     

    Web scraping has been used to extract data from websites almost from the time the World Wide Web was born. In the early days, scraping was mainly done on static pages – those with known elements, tags, and data.
