I am trying to get data from a website into excel. I have been on Wikipedia and a number of software has been recommended. I am using a MacBook Pro. My question is simple which piece of software is best for use with excel?

It depends on what you are trying to do.
R is my personal preference for large data sets (over 104,576 rows) and engineer calculations.
You need to sharp your statistics skills if you want to use R.

I'd go with marious, R is free and has a large online community of help. It's used in a lot of universities to teach data mining.
