Downloads the contents of websites for offline viewing, while allowing users to apply file filters (e.g. image, audio or video items)
Downloading stuff off the Internet for offline use is very common, even today, when you can find a Wi-Fi connection even high in the mountains. Snagging video and audio for later use can entertain someone for so much, so why no take it a step further? Offline Explorer can do that by letting you download not website content, but entire pages. You can still read your favorite content, check social media posts and enjoy whatever a site can provide, the only limitation being not catching the latest news. Still, if you got a lot to catch up to, then you're set.
The interface has an Office-like theme to it, so users familiarized with that type of apps will quickly get the hang of it. Creating a project is a fancy way of preparing a website for download. Start by creating a new folder from the projects tab located below the app's ribbon. Add the URL of the website in question and press start. The processing time can vary, depending on the site's size.
After the download is over, you can open the URL from the initial project in the preview panel nearby. If you are interested in other related links, you can check the Map tab, or Levels, if you wish to directly open sub-URLs or check information like cookie policies, ads, or similar data.
For whenever you get an active connection, there is a possibility to update a snagged website. Look for the Update Pages on the ribbon, so you won't download the whole website again to see what's new.
Offline Explorer is a handy program for individuals who want to download websites to read while offline. Staying in touch with your favorite platforms is now possible even if you are going to remote places where there's no internet connection, or to simply fill in the gaps for when your connection is down.

A user-friendly app that can help you download entire sites off of the Internet, and save them on your hard drive for later offline browsing
Web Dumper is a program that allows you to download an entire website that you can later access offline.
The interface of the application is very plain and simple to use. Once you have typed the website address, you can initiate the downloading process and Web Dumper will take care of the rest.
In "Preferences" you can set the depth level, relink documents for offline browsing and enable Web Dumper to check for updates at program startup.
But you can also select the type of files that you want to download between movies, binary files, pictures, text or HTML, audio files and others.
Furthermore, you can set the size limit of files that will be downloaded, rebuild the original web directory structure, log files (e.g. HTML transactions, incoming cookies, email addresses), specify the output directory and create a list of links that will be skipped.
On top of that, you can modify network options (bandwidth, connection, proxy and protocol - settings can be restored to their default values at any time), use the undo, cut, copy and clear functions, pause the task and write your user account ID and password for the respective website, if this is necessary. The status bar displays the total time needed for downloading, rate and retries.
The application runs on a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a user documentation and quickly finishes a downloading job. No errors have popped up during our tests and Web Dumper did not freeze or crash.
However, the tool didn't exactly manage to preserve the folder structure of a website during our tests. Plus, we haven't seen any written text within the downloaded files and the unregistered version is severely limited. We recommend Web Dumper with reservations.
