Options aplenty could make this Web-content grab tool too complex, but a plain, logical layout makes the program a snap for the advanced user. SuperBot Offline Browser's simple tabbed interface isn't much to look at, but it does make it easy to get started. The Help file is good, but users are expected to understand basic Web-related terms and examples. Unfortunately, novice users probably won't use this tool to its full potential.
It's not hard to figure out where to begin or where to go to get what you need. Whether it's viewing stored pages, or setting the options for download, simple tabs lead users to Start, Progress, Preferences, Log, and Browse. The Start tab can show Common Jobs with the click of a button, and the options include MIME Types and Location Restrictions. The Common Jobs tree-style list easily expands to display possible job-specific settings. The Preferences tab uses the same tree approach to create audio alerts for job progress, set passwords, or other options. Some testers found the built-in browser a bit slow to load files, but their more common browser complaint was the lack of navigation buttons save an address field and Go button.
Minor problems aside, SuperBot Offline Browser quickly and accurately grabbed Web content. We would have like the browser to perform as flexibly as the rest of the app, but we still think experienced users looking to save Web content offline should give the 14-day trial version a try.
