Superior to Internet Explorer's "Save As Web Archive" feature
"In the following very important ways: (1) it downloads individual files in their native format (e.g. html, jpg, etc), whereas IE puts everything into one opaque archive. With web dumper you can, for example, grab all the images from a web site and save them. IE doesn't let you do that. (2) IE does not traverse web sites efficiently. Every additional level increases the dump time exponentially. Because of this, for most sites it is impractical to go down more than 3 levels with IE. Web dumper does not have this problem. The "infinite depth" setting of web dumper is quite usable, whereas IE doesn't even offer it. Great piece of software!"

This is an excelent utility!
"It's quick and easy. Why is this better than Internet Explorer's "Save As Web Archive" feature? First of all I use Web Dumper so that I can re-use content from the web, legally of course. With IE's above mentioned feature, as soon as I save it, everything, the html and images are merged into 1 file. I then cannot re-use the content by uploading it again. I guess IE's above mentioned feature is good for offline browsing, but that's about it. This utility does exactly as mentioned and works quickly and easily, so I must give it 5 stars."

This program is very cool!
"It supports multiple download windows, advises you when the "dump" is complete, allows you to specify the target drive for capturing the dump. Stable, pretty, efficient. Support is very responsive. I like it much better than webwhacker."

I have been using Web Dumper for years
"It works smoothly and quickly. I am not in any manner involved with the developper but I can say that his support is really good. And I use the french version, spanish version and now the english version. WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM."
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.
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.
