IE5 offline browsing
angelosun Nov-05-00 10:57 PM
As known, IE5 has the offline browsing option. I wanted to have the downloaded web site available in other computer than the one I made it available offline, but how to find the downloaded site in the computer? I tried searching for htm files in the system I downloaded the web site, and even trying to copy all the C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content\IE5, but couldn't copy it. Anyone know how to share downloaded sites among computers in the same network (with no ICS). Thanks!

I hope that you realize that when you download a web site it can make a lot of work for a web master. For one thing, it can make mess out of the statistics. I have spent hours fixing problems caused by people downloading thousands of files from my web site, and I do not appreciate it. I don't mind people downloading an article to read later and I have provided printer-friendly versions of some of my more popular articles for that purpose. I consider downloads of my entire web site or large chunks of it a misuse of the service and, in some cases, an infringement of my copyright. It can also rob me of the advertising revenue, which pays for operating this site and my time (to answer forum questions, among other things). Larry

Larry, Thanks for advising about the "other side" of offline browsing. Conscious of the aspects, I'll be more criterious in the future.

If it is such a hassle to webmasters, maybe Microsoft should add a warning/notice message for the option.

Yes. Also it slows down a web site. Larry
