We’re excited to announce the release of Brozzler, the browser-based web capture technology for high fidelity web archiving, to all Archive-It partners.
We recommend using Brozzler if you have difficulty archiving a website, page, or social media feed. Brozzler is available in the Archive-It web application just like the standard crawling technology that you’re used to, but it deploys a web browser behind the scenes to open, interact with, and archive dynamic and interactive web components. For this reason it is already our recommended technology for archiving Instagram and Wix seeds, and partners regularly find new use cases.
For more detailed information about how, when, and why the Archive-It team recommends using Brozzler:
Brozzler is now an option for any test or one-time web crawl. Contact the Internet Archive’s web archivists if you find that it helps and you want to also apply it to regularly recurring crawl jobs. And as always let us know if we can help you to get started!
