I've tried this demo several different times; it just doesn't work for me for some reason. I'm interested in other's opinions/thoughts. Most sites I'm interested in 'block it' or won't allow it. :{

Chaotically interesting software - Viewing all content before downloading is thoughtful and it does look ergonomically simple to use.

I spent a bit of time putting Web Devil through its paces. It does look like a capable application, but I wasn't able to spot any significant advantages over the free SiteSucker utility - which I've used quite regularly over the years.

I would agree with JayHoward, it would be nice to have a longer time to try out these apps. I was testing yesterday's promo: SecretBook and after emailing the developer, he thinks I found a bug. But I wasn't going to pay anything for something that seemingly didn't work. So I didn't buy it and now have lost out on the promo price. Regarding this promo, how is this better/different that Sitesucker and the other freebee apps?

I would recommend in the future that software which is posted on MacUpdate for a promo discount be announced two days in advance, so readers can have a chance to trial the software. Sometimes, by the time you have had time (some people do have busy jobs, can only do this stuff on the weekends) to demo the software, the promo is over. Or, on Sunday night, offer all of the promos for the week at their discount price for a 24 hours period. Bet a lot more would be bought. Just a suggestion.

Looks like a perfect tool for web developers and site authors. I use wget all the time, I'll have to test to see if this tool offers some functionality that I already am using.

In the past I used this product and it mostly worked, but would break here and there. Will try it out and post an updated review on this new version.

I'll see how this compares with WebGrabber on my Panther iMac -- Web Devil apparently has useful additional features. SiteSucker is for 10.4 up.

I purchased an older version of WebDevil some time ago, used it for a while, then switched to PageSucker. PageSucker seemed to handled more of the sites I wanted to download. When PageSucker began to choke on more and more sites I tried SiteSucker but found the results so-so. The new version of WebDevil, OTOH, seems to have brought things back to speed. It ripped flawlessly through some large sites that had both PS and SS flummoxed. I know that mileage may vary depending on site content, but so far WebDevil is working fine for me and I've paid the upgrade fee.

Dear "anonymous"... sitesucker works. this does not. i would gladly pay the developer for sitesucker. i would appreciate it if the developer of WebDevil would address the issues with its software instead of propping up your obvious propaganda... as a consultant i am trusted by my clients for honest appraisals of software. WebDevil needs some work. i will not mislead my clients. try them both. let your experience direct your choice.

I've tried every offline browser there is for the Mac, including Sitesucker, but I always fall back on Web Devil. It gets the files others fail to download. What good is free if it doesn't do the job? You get what you pay for.

It works for me over an ethernet connection. When it works well, it's great. My problem is that downloads are inconsistent across web sites. Some sites can sense and block the software at their end and sometimes you just don't know what you're going to get. The hit to miss ratio is frustrating. Would be an excellent piece of software if you got more consistent results.

I agree, couldn't get it to work with an ethernet connection. Defeats the point really. Would be a really useful Application if someone could get it to work with broadband.
