In this article, we'll explore the FlareSolverr tool and how to use it to get around Cloudflare while scraping. We'll start by explaining what FlareSolverr is, how it works, how to install and use it. Let's get started!
HTTPS is an encrypted version of the HTTP protocol. It implements end-to-end encryption between the client and the web server.
When web scraping public data we don't care much about the security of the connection though we do care about preventing our scraper from being blocked and HTTPS can play a major role in that.
So, scraping HTTPS endpoints is more difficult than scraping HTTP endpoints and if possible, scrapers perform much better when scraping the unsecured HTTP websites.
