    new to osx, ripping software
    hello people,

    I am new to osx and must say its a windows beater....hands down.

    anyway i am looking for a good website ripper. The reason for this is that i only have a limited amount of time on the internet and find that its easier to save the site rather than browse it with the limited time i have.

    Anyway thanks for the help in advance

    Specs:
    17" MacBook Pro, 2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, not unibody
    Wouldn't it be easier to just open the Print dialog and save the web page as a PDF?

    That is a valid point however this doesnt give the interactivity that some sites may offer... such at flash websites.

    This program seems only for windows and not for osx.

    If you want to feel the power of *nix, try wget. Try pretend to be a Google bot and download the website of your choice.

    wget --user-agent="Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)" -r <site address>

    Eg.
    Code:
    wget --user-agent="Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)" -r http://www.sitename.com
    wget is one of the many tools available on *nix based OS to do this kind of jobs.

    Oops! Sorry, it said Mac in the description on the search page. That's why I provided the search terms so you could look at other possibilities.
