HTTrack is a web-based program that allows users to copy any website to your local hard drive for offline browsing. Nothing complicated with this website copier due to its plain web interface, you insert some few details about the website to download and let HTTrack do the rest, which will copy every page on the website, images, backgrounds, and every file hosted on that server with support of resuming interrupted downloads or updating existing mirrored websites.


The latest version of HTTrack is 3.46-1 which hasn't yet landed in the official Ubuntu repository (only for Quantal currently), but you can install it from our custom PPA as described below for Ubuntu 12.04/11.10/11.04. This version brings better unicode filenames handling and many bug fixes.
