I have seen the Spider reference a few times in here, and being a rook, I have no clue what the site is refering to. Can anyone help? :confused:

Here is an example:
Currently Active Users: 18 (11 members and 2 guests and 5 spiders)

A web crawler (also known as a web spider or ant) is a program which browses the World Wide Web in a methodical, automated manner. Web crawlers are mainly used to create a copy of all the visited pages for later processing by a search engine, that will index the downloaded pages to provide fast searches.

A web crawler is one type of bot, or software agent. In general, it starts with a list of URLs to visit. As it visits these URLs, it identifies all the hyperlinks in the page and adds them to the list of URLs to visit, recursively browsing the Web according to a set of policies.
