23andme lets you download your raw genome data as a .zip.

I don't think they provide a way to export the data they present on
their website, though.

There Really Should Be A Tool (tm) that operates as a HTTP proxy and
simply writes out every HTTP resource that you retrieve to the
filesystem.  I don't know of one, alas.  You can build one using
mitmproxy or Perl's proxy module I suspect, but that sounds like work...
