    That's against their terms and conditions, given that they survive on revenue from advertising that shouldn't be a surprise. Services like this tend to shutdown when they don't make money, which is inconvenient for legitimate users, and the former employees.

      I'm just working on an automation stuff to test customers software. I think I'll probably stick with Selenium

        So you're downloading your customers software from a third party site? Sounds legit.
