    "Best out there but not flawless"

    December 13, 2005   |   By solver66

    Version: HTTP Weazel 1.09

    Pros

    I tested this program against the competitor, Rafabot, on a simple website with frames and a few external links. Not all content was downloaded with both programs, however, httpweazel had a higher hitrate than Rafabot. So you should use this one - it is with 20$ also cheaper than Rafabot.

    Cons

    It does not download all links. It is quite a mystery why there is no program which downloads all links available within a certain domain. It should not be too difficult, though, to program it.

    "mediocre and unfriendly but it works"

    November 06, 2005   |   By npeirce

    Version: HTTP Weazel 1.09

    Pros

    it works and it has lots of features like setting link depth and similar options as well as filters

    Cons

    i was looking for something that i could configure wo handle rolling number such as /blah03/blah27.jpg that aren't on an index page. this can't do it, even with the templates and filters.

    it doesn't handle local link list files -- program just closes quietly when you tell it to download.

    interface is cramped and double-clicking in the structure tab does nothing. you have to right click and ask it to display in default browser to see the file.

    hey, but it downloads a website. what else do you want for 20 bucks? If you want to pay twice as much for a webspider without these problems, check out BlackWidow, which has its own problems. If you want a file renamer for after the download, check out "A.F. 5 Rename your files" -- stupid name, narrow scope, but flexible renaming.

    "Not as user-friendly as download.com made it sound."

    September 16, 2005   |   By yummy111

    Version: HTTP Weazel 1.09

    Pros

    Well I can't necessarily say any since I haven't got the project to work for and with me properly. ;P

    Cons

    I can't even view the default templates since they are in this .prj format. Why didn't they just do screen captures of what they look like? they could've also put it on their webpage.

    From what I can tell, they download the page in .prj format too. What use is that to me when I have no program that does that for me?

    What I wanted was a program to save me the extra grief of selecting an image, then having the Save as... dialog box and then clicking OK when I wanted to save pictures from an image gallery. I don't see that here presently (though I obviously wish I did). >_>

    It's given 3 stars just in case somehow I'm missing something. >_>

    I wish there was some actual "help" to look at too, since I don't have a clear idea what the program is doing.

    I think this program might not know how to work-around downloading from sites that require a login and when the computer has a firewall too.

    "Why pay 20 bucks?? Try HTTrack for free!"

    May 22, 2002

    Version: HTTP Weazel 1.09

    Summary

    Just wondering... why someone would pay 20 bucks for this when I can have HTTrack for free??
    Give a try on HTTrack... It's a MUCH better leeching tool.

    "Doesn't download everything, faulty filters, unstable in W2k"

    April 10, 2002

    Version: HTTP Weazel 1.09

    Summary

    this program seems great at first but quicky because a pain. Its filters seem to skip over everything I wanted and grabbing what I didn't wanted, even when designating my own filters it didn't work as it should. I freezes all the time in my w2k sp2, its the only program that has ever crashed regularly on my machine. This my be great for the little home user but using it as a professional sucked.

    "Doesn't download everything and doesn't rename non .htm? pages"

    October 12, 2001

    Version: HTTP Weazel 1.09

    Summary

    This product has limited use do to the fact that it doesn't rename the files to have an extension that can easily be read on your machine. If you go to a site that is scripted and has .asp or .cfm or other extensions. It keeps those names and you cannot directly browse the files it downloaded because when you follow a link, it prompts you to save or open the files.
