Freeware Alternative

Never pay for something you can get for free

HTTrack

Posted by freewarealternative on February 27, 2007

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility. It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site’s relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the “mirrored” website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

Features:

  • Versions available for Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, and other Unix systems
    (Other platforms may soon be included)
  • Multilingual Windows and Linux/Unix interface (English, Français, Castellano, Deutsch, Nederlands, Polski, Português, Italiano, Kréyòl Matinik, Magyar, Brazilian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Danish, Estonian, Swedish, Turkish, Macedonian, Japanese, Slovak, Czech, Ukrainian, Norwegian, Slovenian, Romanian, Greek)
