Web Dumper works the same way all common web browsers do, downloading documents from the World Wide Web using the HTTP protocol. Rather than displaying those documents with their embedded pictures, songs or movies, it saves them to your hard disk for later offline browsing. Web Dumper goes through all links and get any document linked to the given starting page recreating on your hard drive a copy a the original site's folder hierarchy.
Using Web Dumper is straightforward. Just enter the URL you want Web Dumper to start download from and hit the Dump button. It is really that simple and the default settings are the ones you'll use most often. If not just step through the preferences to change them and tell Web Dumper exactly which pages to fetch.
Web Dumper is versatile. It gives you a wide range of options for selecting what to download by file type, location and size. It also offers full support for incremental downloads so you can fetch contents by directory or file name. For example:
Web Dumper is very fast. Its multi-threaded downloading engine fetches pages fast. You can choose how many threads to use and whether to download text only or the full page including graphics.
Web Dumper comes with ready-to-use default factory settings which allows you to start downloading your favorite web site right now. However, you can change settings to meet your needs at any time. Web Dumper lets you select which kinds of file you want to be dumped between more than 60 available standard types, the folder depth level, how links must be processed and if it must re-link your HTML documents for offline browsing.
Once download is started you can follow all processes from the same window including through a detailed file list accessible pushing the disclosure triangle on the bottom left edge.
If you are viewing a Web site with your browser and you decide that you would like to make a copy of it on your hard drive, you have to manually save each page as you view it along with embedded pictures, sounds and so on.
This can be a very long and tedious process, and in many cases it's more trouble than it's worth. It doesn't have to be that way, however, as Web Dumper makes this whole process very fast and easy.
With Web Dumper you can download entire Websites off of the Internet, and save them on your hard drive for later offline browsing.
Downloaded Web sites are saved on your hard drive with their directory structure intact. Web Dumper automatically downloads HTML documents along with their embedded pictures, sounds, movies and so on while it screens them to look for any enclosed links to other documents.
