The number of web sites you can download is limited only by the size of your hard disk.
You can download up to 100 web sites simultaneously.
Yes. You can download single pages by file type, filename, or keyword.
Java classes have become more and more popular in web pages, and many offline browsers, including OE, can download them. However, you may experience the following problems: (1) MS Internet Explorer raises a Security error when a Java class tries to load from a local disk. (2) Many Java.class files could refer to other files or Java classes. Most offline browsers do not investigate them and the loaded page appears to be incomplete--the Java class file simply refuses to load when browsing offline.
Offline Explorer offers better Java support. First, OE includes an internal web server, which solves the MS IE security problem. Second, OE parses Java.class files to find related files and classes and then loads them. You may notice that some files (some with .class extension) cause a "404 Not Found" error. This is because OE checks every possible link included in the Java applet. Some of them may appear to be void, but others will lead to real files.
Yes. OE tries to keep the original servers/directories/filenames structure. The exception is complex filenames, such as:
In such cases, OE will replace symbols such as "?" with others to fulfill FAT/FAT32/NTFS filesystem requirements.
Yes, OE v1.1 and later supports Macromedia Flash (.swf) files.
When Offline Explorer (OE) loads an HTML file, it creates a copy by adding an extension to the filename called ".primary". Since all links in the HTML file are translated, the primary copy contains the original untranslated links. These primary files are used when OE updates previously-loaded sites. When an HTML file appears to be unmodified (and therefore should not be loaded,) or the "Do not download existing files" mode is selected in the Project Properties, OE uses the links in the primary copy to locate other Web files. OE 1.1 uses a more intelligent parsing technology, and creates fewer primary files because in most cases the original links can be retranslated from the offline URLs. However, if an HTML file contains very complex links, the primary copy will be retained. In future versions of OE, the parsing algorithms will use fewer primary files. Eventually, we plan to eliminate the need for them entirely.
You should move the download directory to a new location using Windows Explorer and then change the Download directory in Ofline Explorer - Options | Advanced | Download directory. However, there will be one problem. Since map files contain hard-coded paths for all loaded files, the Project Map feature will not work. Offline Explorer will also be unable to remove loaded files when the Project is deleted from the list.
We plan to improve this in the next version - 1.4. If you change the download directory in that version, all files will be moved and map files will change links to the new files destination.
If you want to copy loaded files to another computer, you should use the Export feature, included in 1.3 version. It allows you to copy loaded files for selected Projects to any location (on local or shared network drives) and change filenames, so they will be better browsed without internal Web server in Offline Explorer
You can adjust the speed using the Download menu. Also, you can lower the data flow in Options dialog setting number of connections to 2 or 3 and delay between downloads from 5 to 20 seconds.
Offline Explorer support multiple proxy servers. If you have more than one working proxy, the program will make every next URL download via another proxy server.
You may enter the proxy servers lists in the Options dialog - Proxy Server section (or Internet tab of the Ribbon - Proxy... button).
One of Offline Explorer customers suggests:
With google i have searched "proxy list", then i have examined some sites,
in particular "http://www.proxyserverlists.net. Here you can choose your
preferred port number list.I have used some of those addresses but i have
found them too slow, in term of response time.
Then i have choosen http://www.xroxy.com, then select "Premium Proxy", then click on "free open proxy list" ( in red color ), there you can select "proxy port number",type of proxy,country, latency and reliability.
I have selected port 80, anonymous,china with the best latency and reliability.Then i have manually copied them into Offline Explorer.
I will be very glad if this my experience will be useful to other Offline Explorer users.
