  1. Complexities Managed: Handles proxies, caching, rate limits, and JavaScript-blocked content for smooth scraping.

  2. Dynamic Content: Gathers data from JavaScript-rendered websites, pdfs, images etc.

  3. Markdown or Structured data conversion: Converts collected data into clean markdown or structured output, perfect for LLM processing or any other task.
