Sites are no longer compatible with IE

Submitted: 6/11/2019
Hi,

We are running into issues more and more where sites we rip (and have ripped for years) are no longer compatible with IE. 

Just changing user agent string does not solve the issue and using Web agent crawler does not offer all the same functionalities as teh Web browser crawler offers.

Is VWR making any changes to using IE as the base crawler (ie moving to Chrome engine) or are there other ways to solver this with VWR so we are not forced to go to other ripping software?

Hi Harry,

thanks for your email.

Unfortunately, as you are aware, this is a liimitation of the IE base engine and Microsoft no longer supporting it's own IE software. Our focus has been on growing our premium software - Content Grabber Enterprise (CG Enterprise). CG Enterprise is a far superior data extraction tool which has been developed with an underlying Chrome engine. It is an annual license and a significantly higher price point than our consurmer based VWR tool at US $5k. However, as an existing customer, I would be prepared to give you a significant discount (20%) if you wanted to migrate across. Note: CG Enterprise also includes functionality to assist with converting VWR agents into Content Grabber agents

Let me know if you like to discuss in more detail.

Best regards

Tony
