    Previously, the Apify SDK offered a blend of crawling functionalities and Actor building features. However, a recent update separated these functionalities into two distinct libraries: Crawlee and Apify SDK v3. Crawlee now houses the web scraping and crawling tools, while Apify SDK v3 focuses solely on features specific to building Actors for the Apify platform. This distinction allows for a clear separation of concerns and enhances the development experience for various use cases.

    Comfortable scraping and crawling with Puppeteer is better done together with another library. This library is called Crawlee, and it's also free and open-source, just like Puppeteer. Crawlee wraps Puppeteer and grants access to all of Puppeteer's functionality, but also provides useful crawling and scraping tools like error handling, queue management, storages, proxies or fingerprints out of the box.
