Browse Web sites offline

Browse sites offline with this plain but effective program.

Although plain in design, this handy tool lets you easily store and view your favorite Web sites offline. Instead of supplying a built-in browser, your stored pages can be quickly viewed in your designated browser.

This freeware program's bland interface is all business. A simple Wizard that leads you through the process of copying Web sites is a welcome touch. Users need only enter a project name, insert the URLs to be copied, and adjust settings as desired, including choosing how many layers of a page the program will pick up. HTTrack Website Copier goes to work very quickly from there, saving the information to a folder. While there is a file tree along the left side of the screen, these folders are more easily accessed through the program's File menu. Saved files open directly in your browser and you can navigate them just like you would the live site.

Less experienced users might not be comfortable with all of the user settings, but will still be able to save offline pages without adjusting anything they don't understand. If you need to refer to certain sites time and time again, this little freeware can make the job easier if you find yourself without Web access.
