Website Ripper Copier is a program designed for Windows PCs that provides you with a solution for offline browsing. This application helps you download entire websites directly to your local directories, extract webpage files of a certain size or kind, etc.
The first thing you need to do is to select the type of download you wish to complete. In my testing, I downloaded the contents of a DIY webpage, with 1 depth level (number of links from the starting page). The utility immediately fetched the needed files, without slowing down the performance of my system.
I like that you can schedule download tasks for later. What's more, the app provides you with a detailed report based on the downloaded data.
An important disadvantage is the fact that it occasionally fails to preserve the original layout of websites. Furthermore, beginning computer users might find it difficult to locate the downloaded files in their destination folders (dozens of folders are created and files are distributed based on various details, like format, page level, etc.).
In my opinion, you should try a different website downloader if you're looking for an intuitive application.
