SiteSucker is an Macintosh application that automatically downloads Web sites from the Internet. It does this by asynchronously copying the site's webpages, images, PDFs, style sheets, and other files to your local hard drive, duplicating the site's directory structure.

SiteSucker can be used to make local copies of Web sites. By default, SiteSucker "localizes" the files it downloads, allowing you to browse a site offline, but it can also download sites without modification.


Release Notes:

Added the ability to change settings while a download is paused.
Expanded the scope of certain base types in the File Type settings.
Limited the timeout value in the Request settings to 75 seconds or less.
Displayed the timeout countdown in the progress status message while an item is downloading.
Improved the way files with the multipart/x-mixed-replace MIME type are downloaded and saved.
Fixed a problem that could cause webpages downloaded using the built-in browser to be saved to the wrong location.
Fixed a problem that could produce blank webpages when using the Download Using Web Views setting.
Fixed a problem localizing some URLs that contain unusual characters.
Displayed the link’s full address at the bottom of the built-in browser when mousing over a link element.
Added the ability to downloaded some supporting files that were being ignored.
Corrected typos in French Path settings.

Version 2.3.6

Awesome - This is a great app for backing up a client's website or downloading API documentation or just keeping an offline version for a presentation. There are a lot of options to go through so if at first you are not getting the results you are looking for dig deeper. There isn't much this can't do.

Version 2.7.6
Review by webbwebs

Crash and Burn - I’ve been using this app for years and until now I’ve been happy with it. When I saw there was a newer release available, I updated to keep current. Big mistake! As soon as I upgraded, the app crashed and I was not able to remedy the problem. It just hangs. I contacted the author and indicated that I had just upgraded to the latest version and that every time I try to load it, I got the message 'Not responding' and I have to force quit.” His response was: "If you're using SiteSucker versions 2.7.4 or 2.7.5 on OS X 10.9.x Mavericks, SiteSucker locks up under certain conditions. A new version of SiteSucker (2.7.6) is now available in the Mac App Store that should fix this problem. If you're having problems with SiteSucker version 2.7.6, please tell me what operating system you're using and the address of site that is giving you problems, and I'll look into it. YES… I did already tell him I had just upgraded (version 2.7.6). And YES… I’m not able to give him the address of a site that was giving me problems because the app won’t start. His final suggest? “Try googling 'app store refund’.” Go figure.
