Offline Browser General settings
For peak performance, it's advised to fine-tune the basic settings before you start using the software. To do this, please adhere to the following steps:
1. Open the program.
2. Head to the menu and choose "Default Options" or an equivalent setting that leads you to the general configurations.
3. This action will prompt a window to appear, where you can modify a range of preferences and settings to your liking.
By customizing these general settings to meet your specific needs, you'll not only improve the software's effectiveness but also tailor its functions to better suit your workflow.
offline browser
Firstly, decide on the directory (or new path) where you'd like to save your project files, as well as the directory where you intend to store downloaded files from the web.

Now, let's explore the diverse features available:
1. Overwrite and Download All Files: This option permits you to save files straight to your hard drive while overwriting any pre-existing files with the same name. This ensures you always have the latest versions.

2. Auto-Follow New Links/URLs:
By enabling this feature, the program will automatically seek out and download additional websites linked to the one you're presently scanning. This provides a streamlined way to delve into related web pages and accumulate extensive data.

3. Limit to Initial Domain List:
This handy setting allows you to limit the extraction to only the websites initially listed. In other words, if you enable this, the program will not download content from websites that are linked from your target website but are not on your initial list. This helps you to specifically obtain only the content you've requested.

For example, if your initial list includes:
And you don't wish to download content from domains linked to these, this setting is for you.

4. Extract Local Links:
Activate this to search for local links within the site you are examining—meaning links that point to other documents or pages within the same website.

5. Extract Exclusively External Links:
Enable this feature if you wish to download only pages linked to external sites, i.e., links that point to different web domains and websites.

By utilizing these options to their fullest, you can effectively tailor your data extraction efforts according to your specific needs.
Connections Count
Within this option, you can set the number of concurrent connections you desire. It's typically suggested to maintain between 5 to 10 connections. However, the ideal count may vary based on your internet service provider's speed and capacity.

Automated Save Interval
Automatically save your progress every specified number of minutes. This setting dictates the frequency of interim result saves.

Connection Timeout
Specify the maximum duration (in seconds) for which each individual document can be downloaded. Once this duration elapses, the program progresses to the next document.

Retry Count
Set how many attempts the program should make to download a document if interruptions occur. Define your preferred number of retries, and the program will adhere to that.

Replicate Website Subdirectory Structure
Choose this to mirror a website's subdirectory structure on your hard drive. When active, your hard drive will recreate the website's directory layout.

Normalize Domain Names
Some websites might omit the "www" prefix in their links, leading to potential duplicate downloads. Activating this option ensures the program views addresses like INTERNET-SOFT.COM and WWW.INTERNET-SOFT.COM as identical, automatically appending the "www" where necessary.

Visual Representation of Download Tree
Use this feature to visually map out the hierarchy of downloaded websites, allowing you to see the branches of your current download.

Browser Identification
This setting determines how the software identifies itself when downloading from servers, mimicking browser behavior to ensure consistent downloading.

Proxy Server Details
Enter your proxy server details here if you're using one. You can also adjust other related settings for hyperlink searches and downloads.

Caution: Given the vastness of the internet, downloading a substantial number of pages could require significant computer resources and disk space. Several hours of operation could consume multiple gigabytes of storage.

File Filtering By Type and Size
This allows you to specify which file types to download and set size constraints. This is especially handy if, for instance, you wish to exclude images or larger files. Simply tick the checkboxes for preferred file extensions, and the program will follow suit. Additionally, set size limits to ensure only files within your defined range are downloaded.

URL/Domain Filtering
Set constraints based on directory, domain, or file names. Input specific terms to guide your download process. This filter can be tailored for inclusions or exclusions, either granting or denying download requests based on your criteria.

Domain Restrictions
Use this feature to set limitations based on domain type or country. Once chosen, the restrictions will be applied as part of the program's primary configurations.
After finalizing your settings, they're saved as the default. As you initiate a new project, these settings will autoload but can be customized individually for each project. In essence, a "project" encapsulates the full suite of settings specifying which website and its linked components you wish to download.

To Download a Website:
1. Click "Project" in the main menu and choose "New."
2. In the ensuing window, input the website's address you want to download.
3. Click "Download/Extract" to start.
4. The ongoing downloads will be showcased in the lower panel.

After completion, your desired website content will be stored on your computer. Now, let's further unpack the essential control panels integral to a downloading project.
Site Map – Structure of the Site
On the left-hand side of the program interface, you'll find a panel that dynamically generates a site map based on the links processed through the software. Right-clicking within this area will reveal a context-sensitive menu. Note that this map is auto-populated when the "Follow New Links" feature is activated. In this panel, you have the option to delete redundant links or copy them for use elsewhere. Additional configurations can be made through the selection of 'Options' or 'Project Options' from the dropdown menu; the latter, for example, enables fine-tuning of filter criteria and download depth settings.

    Online / Offline Preview
    Located on the right-hand side of the interface is a window designed for viewing web pages. This versatile window operates in both online and offline modes. It mimics the functionalities of a standard web browser, allowing you to browse, click through links, and navigate as usual. For additional options, a right-click will bring up a local context menu. This browser window can be moved or closed via options in the program's main menu and it lets you view pages either online or offline, even while other documents are being downloaded concurrently.

    You can easily copy any link to your clipboard and then paste it into either:

    • The list of sites queued for download, or
    • The generated site map.

    Additional Configuration Options
    The software also provides a variety of other commonly used features. For example, if you have a text file containing a list of websites you wish to download, you can import this list directly into the site window using the 'Load' button.
