    Hrefer or scrapebox? Till now I have been using scaprebox but I am learning xrumer & hrefer & wondering if one was superior to the other.

    I have heard hrefer is better than scrapebox. Don't know much about it. I don't have xrummer. I use scrapebox for all the scrapping work.

    Hrefer is incredible.
    The speed and the sieve-filter gives nice reuslts.

    With Hrefer you can suspend scraping or close/kill the process and resune at any time (auto-save).
    Hrefer can auto-refresh his proxy sources, but I don't use this feature.

    ScrapeBox is cheap and it's a Swiss army-knife.
    ScrapeBox is easy to setup and to start a harvest session.
    ScrapeBox have a nice GUI :D

    Hrefer is expensive (you must buying XRumer).
    Hrefer is a complete tool for scraping (auto-refresh proxies ; keywords scraper ; fully customizable ; support Google, Yahoo, Baidu, Yandex, Altavista, ... ; a lot of functions to avoid Google ban ; support differents languages ; support Google times ; full multi-threads ; and more, and more, ...).
    Hrefer have an ugly GUI :D

    Just my opinion...

    In my opinion, one can't replace the other.

    Hrefer is perfect in his job.
    ScrapeBox is THE tool to have, and does very well all what he can do.

    With hrefer you are not limited with results count but with scrapebox you are limited to 1M results.

    Nice explanation, perfect. i found both are usefull, herfer 10/10, SB 9/10 so as you already have SB, going to expensive xrumer are not necessary.
