Wouldn't it be nice if you could read all the content on your favorite web sites at your leisure, and store it someplace safe until you're finished? SiteSnagger is the perfect utility for "snagging" and saving to your hard disk all or part of the web site(s) you're interested in, from text to multimedia files. Site Snagger organizes your saved material into "projects" that are displayed in tree format for convenient access when you want to browse. It also creates a Table of Contents for each project, listing links to each page you've saved from a site, like a list of bookmarks for when you go back online. So catch up on your reading via laptop while commuting in the company car pool... or just save yourself the headache of slow connections at peak hours.

Since web sites can amount to huge stores of information, Site Snagger gives you options to save all or part of the selected site. For example, level 1 saves the first- level pages accessed, while level 2 also saves the pages linked to those on the first level, and so on -- up to 20 levels if you were that ambitious. You can opt to save all page content (e.g. graphics, multimedia) such as if you plan to archive the material, or save text only if quick download is your objective. You can follow offsite links too. Site Snagger also offers proxy server support. SiteSnagger is very easy to set up, has an excellent help file, and works intuitively and efficiently. While this is a free product, technical support is offered via an online discussion group at
