SiteSucker has given me the ability to download entire sites while I am in my civilized location. When I am in my remote, off-grid locale I have an incredible library of reference material, thanks to your product. It turns the web into something I can store on a USB drive or DVD and access when I cannot access the Internet. . . . By downloading sites ahead of time, I am able to reference them as I need. I cannot tell you how valuable this is. . . . By downloading current sites and taking them with me, I have an entire library of resources. Thank you for your many years of development."

    —Katin, March 11, 2010
  • "I have tried about 25 crapware website downloading apps on my PC. None of them worked properly, and their user interfaces left much to be desired. I needed to download a large number of html documents, which contain release notes for software that I and others write, from a Subversion repository. These files link to other files throughout the repository, and for whatever reason, said apps could not handle this. Your app worked perfectly after one preference change (which resulted in various jscripts being saved), and thanks to you, my boss was extremely happy (we do not have time to write our own downloader, and the release notes are vital for a new testing team that does not have access to our repository). I . . . wanted to give you my thanks for writing such a perfectly functioning application. I love the easy to use, non-cryptic UI, and I will recommend your app loudly to all who need such functionality."
