The OfflineLoader Software is a modern and high functional
Internet-Offline-Reader written in Java.
You can use it for downloading webpages on your local computer.
Consequently you can read the pages while you are not connected
to the internet. Further you archive certain webpages that
might disappear or could be modified in future in the web.
The software is still in beta, is not fully tested and could contain some bugs.
It is provided "as it is", which means that you use this software on your own risk.
The author has no liability to the user or any other third-party that could be
damaged by using this software.

For using the software you have to have installed Java 1.4 (J2SE) or higher
