re: Building a traffic fine scraper with Python VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Nice! I didn't know the existence of the pprint module so thanks for that, but I was wondering...what are the benefits (or the reason) of using Selenium over BeautifulSoup and Request modules?

 

With Selenium I can both simulate visually scraping activity by the opening of the browser and clicking the buttons, and also hide the browser for an underground simulation.

It was more for personal comfort actually, haha, since I wanted to experiment with Selenium.
