It is now possible to surf the downloaded website offline with your preferred internet browser such as Internet Explorer, Chrome or FireFox.

To browse the downloaded website, just open the index.html placed in the directory you chose before you begun the web site download.

When FTP Website Download Is Preferable

This website download tool downloads entire websites across public HTTP access. What gets downloaded is the website output, e.g. HTML, content, images etc. If you need to get the original code on the server side, e.g. ASP or PHP code, you need to download the files across FTP.
