    A spider is nothing more than a computer program that follows certain links on the web and gathers information as it goes.

    and A web crawler is a script that scans Internet pages to create an index of data. Also called a bot.

    A spider is a program run by a search engine to build a summary of a website’s content (content index). Spiders create a text-based summary of content and an address (URL) for each webpage.Spider and robot are same but crawler is different from these.
    Crawlers are very active, and often account for a great deal of the visitors to websites all over the internet. The Google crawler, known as Googlebot, is particularly active, and will often visit a website several times a day, checking for updates or new information. Studies have shown that it is much more active than other crawlers, the closest being the Yahoo crawler, which is about half as active as Googlebot.

    I think that both are different work. like spider a browser link program that downloads web pages and crawler a program that automatically follows all of the links on each web page.
