How Scraping Browser outperforms Headless Browsers
Scraping Browser vs Headless Browser
When selecting an automated browser, developers should be aware of the differences between a headless browser and a “headfull”/GUI browser. A headless browser is a web browser without a graphical user interface. While headless browsers are often used with proxies for data scraping, these browsers are easily detected by bot-protection software, making data scraping difficult on a large scale.
Scraping Browser is far superior to headless browsers for scaling data scraping projects & bypassing blocks
Automated Browser for website unlocking
Scraping Browser is a GUI browser (aka “headfull” browser) that uses a graphic user interface, and is controlled by Puppeteer or Playwright API. A GUI browser is less likely to be picked up by bot detection software. Scraping Browser also has built-in website unlocking functions that handle blocks for you automatically. Because Scraping Browsers are opened on Bright Data’s servers, these automated browsers are ideal for scaling web data scraping projects, as you can open as many Scraping Browsers as you need without an expansive in-house infrastructure.
