If you've ever tried to copy an article or an image or a code or coupon off a website, then you're probably aware it's never quite that simple. Whether it's page layout or restrictive content protectors, you often can't grab and save the stuff you want without dragging a whole bunch of excess code and other gobbledygook along with it. And formatting usually goes right out the window.
AnyPicker is a Chrome browser extension that seeks to make the process of web scraping incredibly easy. You can get it for yourself and save a bunch of money in the process at its current sale price of just $39.
AnyPicker really is simple. You don't need to download any extra software, enter a password or worry about anything. Just click what you want to save -- and you're done. AnyPicker integrates seamlessly with Google Sheets spreadsheets, instantly saving your scraped data to an downloadable CSV file. You can even see your saved info in real time, so you'll always know you grabbed exactly what you wanted.
The entire process happens on your local computer and nothing gets saved by Google or uploaded anywhere, so your actions are never tracked. Meanwhile, you can make sure everything you might need later is safely stored away without having to break out code readers or cropping tools or other tech junk to make it happen.
AnyPicker is usually valued at $499.99 for a lifetime subscription to the service, but with the current offer it's over 90 percent off, only $39.

Tech is rising and America's middle class is vanishing. Here's what to do.
- The rise of new technologies is making the United States more economically unequal, says Professor Ramesh Srinivasan. Americans should be pushing the current presidential candidates hard for answers on how they will bring economic security and how they will ensure that technological transitions benefit all of us.
- "We are at an inflection point when it comes to top-down control over very many different aspects of our lives through privatized corporate power over technology," says Srinivasan. Now is the time to debate solutions like basic income and worker-owned cooperatives.
- Concurrently, individuals should develop digital literacy and get educated on the potential solutions. Srinivasan recommends taking free online and open courses from universities like Stanford and MIT, and reading books and quality journalism on these issues.
"One way the internet distorts our picture of ourselves is by feeding the human tendency to overestimate our knowledge of how the world works," writes philosophy professor Michael Patrick Lynch.
- Social media echo chambers have made us overconfident in our knowledge and abilities.
- Social psychologists have shown that publicly committing to an opinion makes you less willing to change your mind.
- To avoid a descent into epistemic arrogance and tribalism, we need to use social media with deep humility.
Technology best serves the user when organic development combines necessity with collective values.
- How are global innovators overcoming the inequality that is forged in the technologies of Silicon Valley?
- Ramesh Srinivasan, a professor at UCLA, points to examples of indigenous communities in Mexico that have created their own cell phone networks, as well as groups in Ghana and Nairobi that recycle discarded devices from the West to make entirely new technologies.
- These groups have successfully decentralized technology governance by using their resources and upping the ante on creativity and innovation.
