WinHTTrack is an offline browser utility that downloads a website from the Internet to a local directory. The program builds all linked files and directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server and saving them to your computer. WinHTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads.

Alternatively, X-WinHTTrack is a portable package for standard WinHTTrack.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

WinHTTrack Website Copier is not portable, it has never been and it will never be- it creates a new Windows shell item anytime it starts. Better use the installer version because a decent uninstaller will delete the registry entries.

WebSiteZip Packer v1.3

Checker on 5 Aug 2014

WebSiteZip Packer compiles HTML files into a single file (including all graphics, sounds, linked pages, etc.) with an integrated HTML browser. Ideal for e-books, product catalogs, site demos, manuals, and searchable information distribution.

CHReader v0.9.4

Checker on 15 Mar 2014

CHReader collects a group of related web files along with images, resources, etc. to a single compressed archive up to 4GB. The program then acts as a dedicated local web server and lets you browse the archive locally using your preferred web browser without needing to decompress. This way you can retrieve very large sites with web spiders and keep them in a compact form that can be readily viewed or referenced..

Note: The main website is offline and the project is no longer under development by the author. Linking to Softpedia. (Thanks to Midas and Craunch.)

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: None
Unicode support: No
License: GPL
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch CHReader.exe.

Can't find CHReader homepage (only Acrylic DNS proxy remains at the original http://mayakron.altervista.org/ website), but it is still available at Sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/chreader/

For more info, see Softpedia:

Note that sourceforge page states that CHReader is now discontinued.

I installed it jsut as the instructions state, I also added a file called 'prefs.ini' just like the instructions state HOWEVER, the program doesn't write ANYTHING to the prefs.ini Instead, it still writes to the appdata\roaming folder on the C: drive.
