We make dozens of improvements to SpoolBot every week. Most of these go unnoticed because if SpoolBot is working, you get what you want. It’s only when SpoolBot doesn’t work well that someone notices. Every now and then we’ll post an update that showcases some of the bigger updates we’ve made to SpoolBot.

This is SpoolBot

Some notable improvements to SpoolBot in the last few weeks:

  • SpoolBot can now fetch PDFs!
  • SpoolBot figures out when to extract content in comments. Some sites make heavy use of comments and you want that commentary in addition to the primary content on the page.
  • SpoolBot can now close lightboxes and popups
In total we’ve made hundreds of improvements to SpoolBot and have hundreds more coming. The more you use Spool the smarter SpoolBot gets.
