Webaroo impressively gives offline access to online Web pages, though our Internet Explorer and Firefox favorites didn't download. This cool software quickly stores selected pages to its cache and gives you offline access to them via its system tray icon. It worked quite well, aside from the fact that our Favorites list did not successfully download (despite a message to the contrary).
The program did successfully let us add sites one by one and as Web packs. With Web packs, you can download several sites at once based on a particular category such as blogs, culture, entertainment, or games. It doesn't give the standard interface, but rather an easy-to-navigate Web page-like interface. Adding sites was easy, and though downloads were a bit slow, we were impressed with the outcome. You can even schedule automatic updates once a day at a specific time.
Advanced settings are great for filtering what gets downloaded to your system. Though we aren't pleased that our Favorites didn't download, we like this program's aptitude. You'll need Microsoft .NET 2.0 to run it, but you'll like having access to Web pages on your mobile devices and laptop.

i didn't believe first time when i heared about off line web searching.so, i download the software and used.Now confidently i can say that its a good effort and it will be very usefull for mobile devices and the people whose most of the time spent on businees tour.
some of the web packs takes more time to get updated.
i usually only got 2 hour net in a day , and i foud diffculty in my rest hours without net .After getting webaroo my work becme easy now in 2 hours i add all sites which i need later and in this way webaroo help me a lot .
Like the idea and the people behind it seem to have great credentials. Was keen to try it.
I couldn't even install it properly - I mean (1) it forces you to download MS .NET Framework 1.1 even if you have upgraded to 2.0 on your machine - and that takes forever, and then (2) you have to configue multiple lines of stuff that I could not figure out. I have an MSc in Comp Sci and squillions of years on PCs/Internet. I uninstalled it. It ain't ready.
