Saving web pages of a website individually doesn’t always help webmasters and developers compare a fresh version of web content, UI elements, references, links, with previous versions of websites, as it’s quite tiresome task to manually link pages, adjust index and master pages, etc., in order to use an offline website without any issues for comparing purposes. If you for instance modify web design / content on live web server, you may need a tool which can download your website by pulling all the contained pages, data, referral material, uploaded files, images, etc., for offline viewing. Fresh Websuction includes a comprehensive list of features to download website on your system. It comes with filter options which allows you to download only specified files. For example, you can choose to download only images, audio and video files, and archived files or all HTML, ASPX, PHP, JOS, XML files on your system.
Fresh Websuction is capable of downloading up to 50 files filtered through user-defined conditions on any local location. It provides a simple configuration wizard which guides you through the process of downloading website. In first step, enter complete URL followed by project name.
