ScrapingBee alternatives for web scraping?

ScrapingBee is the most efficient web scraping API out there. Let's see how it compares to the other big names.

Before ScrapingBee we used Luminati. Our bill started to explode quickly with their residential proxy offer. We were always afraid of how much we were about to pay at the end of the month. We don't have to worry anymore.
