In 2013 investment in 'visual web scrapers' has increased, just look at Crunchbase for plenty of examples. This is being driven by the increase in demand for Business intelligence aps particularly driven by big data.
in 2013 Import.io - a visual scraper / crawler company rasied 1.3m in Seed funding, and google has acquired scraping companies (Needle base being the prime example) in the past, and subsequently shut them down. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DataFace (talk • contribs) 11:18, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
A lot of work has clearly gone into this article, but the "nomenclature" paragraph I just demoted from the lead was verging on eyeball poison. First impressions, and all that. — MaxEnt 01:35, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Proposal to merge Knowbot into this article
I propose that Knowbot be merged into this article. It's highly unlikely that we're going to find new sources for that article, and I think the content there would be better suited here than as a permastub. Enterprisey (talk!) (formerly APerson) 03:49, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
