Web Dumper Description
Web Dumper is a program that allows you to download an entire website that you can later access offline.
The interface of the application is very plain and simple to use. Once you have typed the website address, you can initiate the downloading process and Web Dumper will take care of the rest.
In “Preferences” you can set the depth level, relink documents for offline browsing and enable Web Dumper to check for updates at program startup.
But you can also select the type of files that you want to download between movies, binary files, pictures, text or HTML, audio files and others.
Furthermore, you can set the size limit of files that will be downloaded, rebuild the original web directory structure, log files (e.g. HTML transactions, incoming cookies, email addresses), specify the output directory and create a list of links that will be skipped.
On top of that, you can modify network options (bandwidth, connection, proxy and protocol – settings can be restored to their default values at any time), use the undo, cut, copy and clear functions, pause the task and write your user account ID and password for the respective website, if this is necessary. The status bar displays the total time needed for downloading, rate and retries.
The application runs on a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a user documentation and quickly finishes a downloading job. No errors have popped up during our tests and Web Dumper did not freeze or crash.
However, the tool didn’t exactly manage to preserve the folder structure of a website during our tests. Plus, we haven’t seen any written text within the downloaded files and the unregistered version is severely limited. We recommend Web Dumper with reservations.
