Editors' Review

by   / May 04, 2010

WebCopier Pro promises to speed up your Web browsing by downloading entire Web sites to your hard drive, freeing you from the sluggishness of your Internet connection. In this age of high-speed Internet, however, we're not sure how relevant this is. While it might be better than no Web access at all, we found it to be significantly slower than browsing a Web site with a cable Internet connection.

The program's interface is not the most intuitive we've ever seen, but it looks nice and isn't terribly difficult to figure out with a little effort. Downloading a Web site is fairly easy; WebCopier has a wizard that walks you through the process, and for the most part all you have to do is wait. And depending on the size of the Web site, you might be waiting a while. We tried the program on a smaller site and although it managed to download most of it, it seemed to get inexplicably hung up on one file, and we couldn't figure out any way around it. We decided to browse what had been downloaded of the site, and we can't say we were terribly impressed. It appears that you can only browse downloaded sites within WebCopier Pro, and this is actually significantly slower than using the Internet. The program is just sluggish, taking a surprisingly long time to load pages that are stored on the hard drive. The program's Help file is adequate. Overall, WebCopier Pro works, but it doesn't work that well.

WebCopier Pro has a 15-day trial period. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program with reservations.
