Spider the Web with Firefox

Save lots and lots of web pages to your local disk without hassle.

If a web page is precious, a simple bookmark might not be enough. You might want to keep a copy of the page locally. This hack explains how to save lots of things at once with Firefox. Usually this kind of thing is done by a web spider . A web spider is any program that poses as a user and navigates through pages, following links.

For heavy-duty web site spidering done separately from Firefox, Free Download Manager (http://www.freedownloadmanager.org) for Windows and wget(1) for Unix/Linux (usually preinstalled) are recommended.

Save One Complete Page

The days of HTML-only page capture are long gone. It’s easy to capture a whole web page now.
