SiteSucker is a very slink tool for downloading complete websites from the Internet. It works fine, there have been no crashes so far and all important things are adjustable in the preferences. As it has already been said there could be maybe some more options for updating downloaded websites after a time (for example an archive of archvied websites). Another negative aspect is the fact that there's no further development for OS X 10.6.8. But as long the old version still works, it's not that bad. Finally you always have to keep in mind that it's for free. Therefore it's a great piece of software!

Works with a limited array of code elements, and doesn't recognize javascript at all. You should state this in the summary.

Well, I have to say that this is the best offering I've seen for this category on OS X. I would very much like to see some performance improvements and some higher multithreading capabilities and a higher leveraging of multiple processors.

I would also like to see more clear options of updating sites so that a clear path is available for reacrawling a site after initial crawl.

When I say best, I am saying that out of the other options this is the most "mac-like" option and the seemingly fastest. Even though I say it is the fastest, there is room for improvement as noted above. As a developer I can see a number of ways to tweak this sucker (pardon the pun) to really make the engine roar if desired.

I have had problems with some hangs or long delays that resolve themselves after a while, so it would be nice to address these.

Mine was doing the same thing and I wrote to the author. Today I received an email saying that this was fixed. I downloaded v.2.4.1 and it's now up and running, no crashes. Now to figure out how to DL videos only.

Brilliant!! I use this occasionally to download and test sites and it just works. The log file generated by SiteSucker is also a great resource. Recently I had a crash on startup problem and Rick fixed it straight away.

Bad mistake to stop making updates for 10.6.8. Many people still use it.

If you must grab a screenshot from a web side (and your are the owner of the web side or have the legal rights), then this tool is absolut perfect! Even if it grabs / saves some content more than once (with different file names).
Thanks to the developer for this application!
And also thanks for offering support for older Mac OS versions!

Perfect, exactly what I was looking for and easy to use. No restrictions, just a brilliant bit of free software.

happy to donate to this wonderful app. tried all the similar options at Macupdate: Maria, WebDumper, BlueCrab, WebDevil, SiteCrawler, etc, etc.. All i could find. Spent a lot of time, but I kept returning to SiteSucker. Just seems to do and get what I want. Others where either slow, didn't get some files, or where too simple or complex. SiteSucker seems to strike a perfect balance between power and simplicity. And I just found out it has an iphone/ipad app which makes it a no-brainer. Some things I'd like to see in newer versions are: Time remaining, maybe change a setting while downloading, ability to stop a directory from downloading. I know you can specify it in the "paths to exlude" section but if you don't do it before you start then you have to do everything all over again. The regular expressions to include/exclude paths is not very friendly though, which is why i give it a 4.5.

Anyone know if SiteSucker has the capability of downloading FLV files? The manual says it scans SWF files, but FLV files are never downloaded for me...

Well, this used to be my download app of choice when it came to websites. It really was almost perfect.

Tried it out today and for some reason it simply refuses to work. Tried all sorts of sites including my own. "I know" I said to myself, "I'll update it, perhaps my version 2.4.0 is old and no longer works with Leopard".

Unfortunately you can no longer download it and the developer's website is down. Looks like I'll have to switch to BlueCrab; though I'll try SiteCrawler & WebDevil also.

Is it me? Every update to this program will not download properly using any version of Camino. Firefox yes, Camino no. And it is the only program I have trouble with.

Anyone else have this problem?

Well, it must be something else that's interfering with the download then, because every time I download, it's a partial one and the file cannot be extracted. Odd, isn't it?
