Publisher's Description:

PageNest Free Edition - Use PageNest Free Edition offline browser to copy websites and pages to your hard disk. PageNest will create an exact copy of virtually any page or site. Create archives of your favorite sites. Copy interesting or useful pages before they disappear from the internet. Browse the downloaded sites without needing to open an internet connection.

Designed to be easy to use, you can start a download in PageNest Free Edition with as few as two mouse clicks. It will grab the address of the current site from your internet browser, or by dragging and dropping a link. You can also, of course, type in a website address. There are options to choose between downloading a single poge or an entire site.

PageNest uses a fast multithreaded downloading engine with up to forty threads for the fastest downloads. The number of threads can easily be adjusted whilst downloading.

PageNest Free Edition maintains the original directory structure of the sites. Files are saved as standard html, jpeg, gif etc so they can be viewed in any suitable software. They can even be edited and re-uploaded. Dynamic files (php, asp, pl etc) are converted to HTML (or other file types as appropriate). You can view downloaded site in PageNests built in browser, or you can use your own browser - downloads are viewable in any browser. There is no need to run a server on your machine.

Sites are listed into a 'tree' to make them easy to organise, and previous downloads quick to find. Quickly find recent downloads in the 'recent download' list shown at start up (or at any time on the 'Welcome' tab).

PageNest Free edition has been developed from our existing WebStripper offline browser. WebStripper has been in development since 1998. This long history makes it very stable, reliable and bug free.

PageNest Free Edition is free for non commercial use. This means you can use it in the home, in not for profit organisations and in recognised education establishments.

Works great with "normal" websites. Tried to download some documents from a QuickPlace (Lotus Notes) site as an archiving experiment but didn't succeed. Comes up with the password request but fails to download.

This is superb. I am about to go with my 80-year-old father to Northern France and Belgium to where my grandfather (his father) served during the 1914-18 War. Since 3G broadband is still stupidly expensive for UK users abroad, I was expecting to have an internet 'blackout'. Thanks to PageNest, we can take various key websites with us ... and it is SO easy to use - sincere thanks !!!

This program is great for multiple uses. I am using it to make sure I always have a website that I am worried might not be there in a few months.

PageNest Free: very good, still needs tweaks

I tried several "download the entire site" programs recently, and PageNest Free was one of the easiest to use, and had a very clear and easy to understand interface.

The one problem that prevented it from being my number one choice tool in this category was that I couldn't figure out how to stop it from downloading files from other domains.

At the time of this review I can't remember the setup choices, but I selected the option to not download from other domains (servers?), but it still tried to download everything under the sun from numerous other domains. I tried the download a couple of times. Maybe there was a way to correct it, but I didn't have the time or the patience to figure it out.

Otherwise, PageNest Free is an en excellent program.

Best free choice I have found so far but:

Program is not stable, crashed on me several times. Even though I tell it not to relink anything it insists on altering code. My purpose for this type of tool is to download potential clients existing sites and make changes to it as offerings to them. I need folder structure and code to be exactly as it is in site with no changes. My revamped code needs to fit in their existing folder structures with no cliches. If I cannot see exactly what the structure is I cannot properly write the code. As potential clients I do not have access to the ftp access user name and passwords, but I need to see what I'm getting into whether it be static, php, fusion, asp et etc.

Author's Response:
The original foder structure of the site is always preserved with PageNest. If you start the download with New/Raw Site Download it will be downloaded without making any changes (normally the site is rewritten to make links etc browseable offline).

Note that there is no way to download the originals php etc files unless you have FTP access (that will apply to any offline browser tool).

Alshalaly comments.

Your software product has alot of advantages. But unfortunately it did not help me too much because I am trying to use it to download entire websites with it's all links content which are pictures(photos) but your program download only the first page and what I got only the small images which are very small and iam looking for the large pictures from the gallery website. And I want to get what I am in need of while I am online in my workplace so that I can surf them offline while I am home.

Edit the site properties, go to the Range page and select 'Whole site'.
