Better/faster way to access the internet for scraping?

I am presently using WebRequest and WebResponse to access a particular web site, which is very slow compared to accessing by browser.  Is there a better/faster way to access a web page for scraping?

Hello rmmarsh,

if it is faster i do not know that also depends on how you parse the contents, but you could look at the webclient class in .NET
source: http://www.codersource.net/csharp_screen_scraping.html

that sample even gives a small hint about extracting parts with regular expressions in this case to extract all links on the page

hope this helps a bit
