Re: Web Page Downloader
To take the first part of what you want, do you mean, will work fine
offline starting with a cleared cache and continue to work fine offline
to get all the other pages on the website?
Different browsers have different abilities to save webpages and sites.
With old Mac IE you could specify the level of links you wanted
preserved and it would prepare a file that worked entirely off line to
the depth wanted. Proprietary MS method. Basically it saves a page
*with* all the images and other stuff (all the info goes into the
offline file) and goes to the links on it and does the same at those
(online) pages and so on to the depth specified. You get the lot and can
view offline later. It worked *quite* well.
In Safari, you can save a page but not deeper and it resolves the urls
on that page so that if you are viewing the offline file, it will get to
the online links ok provided you are online at the time or have the page
cached. It also is prettu proprietary looking.
Firefox is more straightforward, transparent in that you get a html file
and a folder is created with the images and other resources downloaded
to you machine for that one page.
I better stop in case no one is reading me...
