Why web scrape with Selenium Python?

Selenium's ability to interact with JavaScript websites, combined with Python, provides a powerful option for web scraping. Selenium automates the browser, simulates user actions, and extracts data from dynamically generated websites.

What is dynamic content?

Dynamic content is the website elements that change after the initial page load. Unlike static content, which remains constant, dynamic content is usually loaded dynamically through JavaScript. The feed you see depends on your search history, geo-location, cookies, and other browser fingerprint features. Some examples of dynamic content include real-time stock prices, social media feeds, or interactive forms that update without a page refresh.

Residential and datacenter proxies are the main two types that offer a way to hide your IP and, among many other things, can help you anonymously scrape data from the web. However, they differ significantly – so which proxy type is the ideal choice for you?
