  • FlareSolverr

    Proxy server to bypass Cloudflare protection

    Project mention: Scraping Google trends, and incomplete datasets. Help, please? | /r/datasets | 2023-12-07

    What i didnt tried: - scraping and using these (single page) tokens - headless browser - web-test-frameworks like selenium (programmable browser) - using Flaresolver (my best bet) . A headless browser / proxy developed to bypass cloudflare. You can easily deploy it onprem with docker. I know google got its own defence machanisms, but i've got very good experience using it for scraping and crawling (at least cloudflare protected) websites. So i guess its very good at pretending being a normal browser, being a normal user.
