HTTrack Website Copier- Stay Connected Without Being Connected

O. James Samson - November 16, 2006

1014301003-1.gifAs great a tool as the Internet is, not being able to have access to certain information in certain sites because of server problems, limited Internet access or whatever can really be frustrating. So if you are looking for a way to stay connected to the Internet even when you are not connected, you might find this useful.

HTTrack is an offline browser utility that allows you to download a website from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting html, images, and other files from the server to your computer.

The fact that it arranges the original site’s relative link-structure makes this software a really useful tool. All you have to do is to simply open a page of the “mirrored” website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. It can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. It is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

If you have limited Internet access then this software is for you but if you have unlimited access to the Internet you may not really find it useful. But you can use it as backup for your favorite sites so that you can access necessary information whether you are connected or not, whether your server is down or not.

WinHTTrack is the Windows 98/NT/2000/XP release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack the Linux/Unix/BSD release. Check out the download page.
