Global replaces

Global replaces tab used to define string replacement rules for loaded webpage source code. Thus Datacol can replace definite strings (or string patterns) with other ones. It stands in good stead when we need to remove advertisement blocks from source code, replace HTML ampersand code to ampersand itself (& to &) or simply clean content of HTML tags, scripts etc.

Global replaces are applyed to webpage source code immediately after load till data and link collecting process start. Replaces are processed in order of their list placement.
