Current Version: 3.2

PageSucker is a small utility written in Java that allows entire Web page hierarchies to be downloaded automatically. The pages will thereby be modified in such a way that they can then be viewed off-line (even after copying them to a CD-ROM or the like). Mac OS X users can download the archive below and execute the "PageSuckerClasses.jar" file directly from the command line (see the "Read Me"file included in the download for more information).

Version 3.2 adds CSS stylesheet support, options to delete empty or incompletely downloaded files, and makes lots of bug fixes.

Site licenses are available for $300.

User Reviews

"I have found PageSucker incredibly valuable for downloading entire web sites. Sometimes, I do this just to be able to find something I know is on the site, somewhere, but more often I use it to back up friends' sites when I know they don't do backups themselves. It is also great for capturing sites that are about to be censored, so you can mirror them with a minimum of effort. PS does a funny thing with the "index.html" file, but if you have a site management tool (such as Adobe GoLive) you can easily fix this, and then you have the whole site in working form."

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.
