Our Review:

HTTrack is an impressive product that does everything that you could want from a website ripper—download any website to your computer and then browse at your convenience. The entire website is there, the sub-directories, pictures, and internal links. Links to external websites are only active if you have an internet connection.

HTTrack is compatible with all Windows versions, and is GPL licensed freeware. WinHTTrack is the Windows release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack is the Linux release. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

After a quick install you may start the program and select your language preference. You are then presented with a box to tell the program if you use a proxy for FTP transfers. If you do not use a proxy, just cancel and click next where you can give your project(s) a name and category. The default download folder is C:\My Web Sites so just click next. Now you can paste in a URL for the website you wish to download. If you click on Options this will give a number of choices. These can also be accessed on the top menu through Preferences. Click on next to get to the last screen to make any last options before one last next. Now you can watch HTTrack download the entire website.

It might take a while for the program to download the whole site, and is not as easy to use as some other products mentioned in this review.
