Performance

When a query string is set, add it to a field

For example "restaurant Madrid|restaurant Barcelona|restaurant Valencia", grab the inputs and store on the results row.

Starbucks, 91333222, restaurant Madrid McDonalds, 93223233, restaurant Barcelona

Probably sometimes you add some data to fill a form. That query should be introduced on the results.

Merge results

Sometimes we can be monitoring for some values, getting 1 row each time (details). Probably would be nice to merge those results in a single table for convenience. Scraping for one month will keep the results on a single table with 30 rows.

New idea
Improve IF condition

For the if condition, would be great to allow a comparison with a text string to avoid creating some variable initialization. For example, to set the pagination is equal to ">"

Save Screenshots with filenames using URL/Permalinks

this is the a crucial part of saving any file, you can find the file unless it is saved with the url name. atleast first 20 characters must be used in each filename as sometiome permalinks are very long
