Are you looking for an application that allows you to download a website with all its internal elements in a quick and easy way but you are tired of those programs full of advertising or payment? Fortunately comes to the rescue, as almost always, an open source application. In this case we are talking about HTTrack, a platform that has been specially developed to offer you this type of very specific solutions.
As we said before, HTTrack has been conceived so that you have the possibility to download all the contents that make an Internet page, and it also stands out for the huge amount of configuration options that it offers us, among which we can mention some like the choices of the elements that we want to download, the choice of a maximum size for the files, or a maximum number of simultaneous downloads.
Once you have downloaded, installed and run HTTrack, you will then be able to download a web page with absolutely all its contents, something we have already said, but when we say all the contents we mean each of them, from the links to the images they have integrated, something that not everyone can do. In fact, to be honest we found HTTrack to be one of those few applications that have been designed conceiving its user as a novice, since the guides it offers are excellent in case you haven't used similar software before. If we add to that that it turns out to be able to adapt to any of the websites we may be interested in downloading, then you won't need any other complementary tool.
In turn, we have noticed that HTTrack allows you not only to download all the elements that make those websites you want to see in detail without the need to be connected to the Internet, but it is also possible to configure its storage. By this we mean that you have the possibility of sending the generated documents directly to external storage devices to your PC, a very useful option.
On the HTTrack interface we have already talked a bit in passing, commenting that we have been surprised by the total surveillance over our movements that it performs, in order to prevent us from making mistakes if we are inexperienced. Our feeling is that although the aesthetic aspect is not too careful, we can see a strong work in the intuitive design, and that is a highly positive aspect.
To keep in mind
HTTrack also has a portable version, which you can take stored for example on a pendrive, and can be run from there without having to go through the always irritating installation processes of this type of program. Of course, in this case some of its main functions are missing, although it can be an excellent alternative for users who want to run it on several computers at the same time.
The main positive aspect of HTTrack is related to the fact that it promises to allow you to download complete websites with each of their elements, and indeed, we are dealing with a free platform that allows us to do so. Beyond that, having a portable version, being able to store the information directly on an external device, or being able to filter which contents to download and which not, seems to us to greatly improve the average experience with this type of software.
Although as we have been mentioning throughout the review it is evident the effort that the creators of HTTrack have made so that even those who have no experience with this type of tool can use it, it is still not a simple program. It is clear that this is directly related to the type of tasks it offers, but you have to know that learning to use it will take you some time, beyond the guides and tutorials available.
In conclusion, HTTrack can be a really interesting tool for those people who want to download a complete web page to observe later all its contents, without even needing an Internet connection. If we add to that the fact that it offers a portable version that makes it especially attractive for those who have several computers, it is clear that it has almost no competition in its segment.
