I say: Point it at a URL and it downloads the entire website. Once you get the hang of the interface it's really easy to use.


They say: "WebReaper is web crawler or spider, which can work its way through a website, downloading pages, pictures and objects that it finds so that they can be viewed locally, without needing to be connected to the internet. The sites can be saved locally as a fully-browsable website which can be viewed with any browser (such as Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, etc), or they can be saved into the Internet Explorer cache and viewed using IE's offline mode as if the you'd surfed the sites 'by hand'.

To use WebReaper, simply enter a starting URL, and hit the Go button. The program will then download the page at that URL, parsing the HTML as it goes, looking for links to other pages and objects. It will then extract this list of sub-links and download them. This process continues recursively until either no more links fulfil WebReaper's filter criteria or your hard disk becomes full - which ever happens first!

The locally saved files will have their HTML links adjusted so that they can be browsed as if they were being read directly from the internet.

The download is fully configurable - custom hierarchical filters can be constructed from 12 different filter types to allow targetted downloads. Simple filters can be built using the Filter Wizard, or more complex ones can be hand-crafted."

FIFTY FREEWARE FAVOURITES - A GENERAL NOTE

Please Don't Contact Me...

About any app NO LONGER in my 50 Favourites... I simply don't want to know...

For help... Please don't contact ME for help using any program. I only recommend it, I don't (and can't) offer a free support service for every program I recommend.
What you can do for yourself is...if you have any problems with anything I've recommended, contact the author of the program, or Google it.

Re: broken links... Links change. I have stated above the date on which I last checked the links. When I next update this section I'll check all the links again. So please don't contact me if the links don't work - I'll find out eventually.
What you can do for yourself is... if the links I give are broken, try searching for the program using Google or FileMirrors - that's what I'd do!

Re: it's not freeware! All of the programs I recommend in this section are 'free' in the sense that they were at one time distributed as fully functional software with no payment required for their continued use. However... some software companies withdraw their freeware, or offer programs as freeware for a short period before 'upgrading' them to shareware. So please don't contact ME to say any program I recommend is no longer freeware. I'll find out when I next update.
What you can do for yourself is... search the net... As I understand it, if you can find the original freeware distribution, and it still works, there's nothing to prevent you from legitimately using it. You could try the Last Freeware Version or OldVersion.com.
