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. :{

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 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.

We can't fix the problems if we do not know what they are. Please send us a list of problem sites and we will look into them.

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.
