ParseHub Vs. Proxies API

The world of web scraping is varied and complex, and Proxies API sits at one of the most crucial junctions. They are allowing web scrapers/crawlers to bypass IP blocks by using a single API endpoint to access our 20 million-plus high-speed proxies on rotation.

One of the questions we get frequently is how we are different from services like OctoParse or Diffbot. Many times it is like comparing Apples and Oranges. Still, when we send this comparison table to our customer's developer team, their CXO, their marketing, or SEO team, they typically get it quite quickly if we are a convenient service or not.

So here is how we are different from ParseHub.

Parsehub offers a desktop app that makes scraping visual, point, and click, and accessible. The tool supports multiple pages, AJAX support, form submission, dropdowns, etc.

They offer export of data via JSON, Excel, or even an API.
