I'm using excel selenium to scrape some information from pages with lots of images. Is it possible to make the browser don't load the images of the page? So it could be more faster.
Yes, that is possible for an example see this question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7157994/do-not-want-images-to-load-and-css-to-render-on-firefox-in-selenium-webdriver-te
I am wondering if Selenium is the right crawler to get text from a website. If you need to crawl dynamic sites than a headless browser like PhantomJS will be much faster: https://www.sitepoint.com/web-crawling-node-phantomjs-horseman/
If the site is static plain http crawlers will be even faster.
