Cyotek WebCopy 1.0.9.0
Copy websites to your hard drive for offline viewing

Cyotek WebCopy is a clever tool which copies all or part of a website to your hard drive for offline browsing.

Grabbing a small and simple site is easy: just enter a URL in the "Website" box, and choose the Copy option. Cyotek WebCopy downloads that page, and any links (within the same domain), then repeats the process until it's done. And then you're able to view the local copy of any page, and browse it as though you were online.

If your needs are more complex then WebCopy provides various options to help. You can tell the program to exclude particular sections of the site, for example. You're able to predefine user names and passwords, allowing WebCopy to access protected content. The program can set a custom user agent string, include or exclude particular MIME types from the copy process, and more.

Managing these more advanced tasks, and viewing the downloaded site afterwards, isn't as straightforward as it should be. The interface doesn't really guide you through the process; you have to browse the options yourself, and figure out what to do. PC or offline browsing novices will probably struggle to cope, at least with more advanced sites.

If you know what you're doing, though, there are a lot of unusual extras here. Cyotek WebCopy supports the use of regular expressions in many areas, for example. There's a built-in editor to help you create and test them. And once a site has been downloaded, WebCopy even generates a visual site map which you can customise and save as an image.

v1.0.9.0 changes:
  •Added an "Additional Hosts" page which lets you specify additional domains to crawl
  •You can now configure separate proxy server settings for each project

Verdict:

Cyotek WebCopy has a cluttered interface which can be confusing, especially if you're new to offline browsing. It does have some powerful options, though, and is completely free (no adware or other annoyances), so if you're interested in creating local copies of websites then it's worth trying.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
