Tool for extracting content out of a web page


I would like to ask you if there is any tool that I can use for extracting content out of a web-page especially out of Combobox. I would really like a tool that basically uses the mouse to do that.
I would be really thankful for any recommendations.

Thank you.
Dear all,

If you visit a webpage with firefox and have the firebug extension installed you can right-click any element on the page and examine the source code regarding this element. So if you right-click on a select field and click "examine element" (or similar) you will see all the option tags that form the selection content.

Is it something like this you are looking for?
