    I was considering purchasing ScrapeBox solely for its proxy scraper, but it seems like a waste of money if I'm not going to use any of its other features. Is there any reputable software that is just a proxy scraper like ScrapeBox's?

    Maybe I am wrong but my scrapebox doesn't scrape (extract ) any proxies , it has built in his own 6 sources and he test them for you about 6000 proxies , when you test them you will get 600 good proxies , but scrapebox proxies are worst proxies you should gain, because they are used every day by thousands scrapebox users for the same queries scrapebox for extracting and testing proxies to use with another application I would never recommend . There will be new free proxy extractor in download section and authors claims it will be very powerful so search for it , it will search for the and test them for speed and also if they are anonymous etc.

    I will be using them for creating Twitter accounts and use for Tweet Attacks. But if other people are using the same IPs I am and they get banned, then so will my own Twitter accounts so ScrapeBox proxies don't seem to be good since a lot of people are using ScrapeBox proxies for Tweet Attacks...and I don't have $1,000/month to spend on private proxies when I only make $300/month with this method. So I need to leech them which is why I'm looking for a better program

    You're not totally wrong concerning the quality of proxies from built in sources, but you didn't consider this : you can add as many additional sources as you like, instead of using built in sources.
    ScrapeBox can still harvest and test proxies from any source you can add.

    proxygrab 0.6 will do what you want it to do. You just have to provide the websites from where to scrape the proxies from. Then test the proxies in charon. Just google both of them.

    Yes , it is true , I know , but would never buy it if he wants it only for proxy purposes , I've purchased Proxyswitcher for the similar money and this searches for proxies , switches from 10 seconds to 30 minutes proxies for all applications in my computer , sort them to folders by anonymous , ssl , elite , dangerous , dead , private , basic anonymous , measures speed , test all proxies every interval you say , extracts new proxies every interval you setup , everything automaticly (costs 45 $ I guess), not comparable with scrapebox which otherwise I like a lot .

    I don't know any websites but I thought ScrapeBox had a large built-in list of sites to scrape from which is why I wanted the feature.
    Where can I purchase this?

    If you buy Proxyswitcher You don't need to transfer proxies from one application to another , you can grab them there , use them there , setup period when they will change , you can run all applications you have through this switcher , I use it for all my extractors .Works perfect , it starts with my windows , search for proxies automaticly , I don't care about proxies anymore , computer , browsers are all the time behind them.
    Proxyswitcher will test every single proxy few seconds before using , I don't have any problem with it.

    you can also google for [email protected] version : "proxy switcher hotfile" and you will find plenty of them but I when I like something I better buy it , PRO version costs 49$ , Standard 29$ , so it is not too much expensive . difference between them I don't remember , I automaticaly purchased the better one.

    Does it still support import/export of proxy lists? Import lists to check proxy lists I have, and export proxy lists so i can load them in Tweet Attacks since I need to have several proxies running simultaneously, not just 1 at a time.

    I buy software unless I plan on not getting any upgrades. For this I think it might be worth it for upgrading lists/checkers or other features, etc.

    I don't think that there will be some major upgrade in close future , so try some hotfile , rapidshare version and if you like it , buy it ,
    I want updates and stay well with it , because good working proxies or proxy application are for me important , I don't like fighting with not working [email protected] versions so I purchased it immediately.
