    What software is the best for downloading an entire website? Free would be preferred, but I'm willing to shell out a few bucks if it's the best thing out there.

    Firstly that depends on Frontpage extensions being enabled on the server. Its also designed for working with your own website, not other peoples, and is a very poor replacement for using FTP to transfer files with your hosting.
    Secondly, its not free which was a requirement mentioned in the first post.


    Finally, Frontpage should never be used, ever, for anything, by anyone...

    LOL! Never used it, but I'll take your word. Not a big fan of frontpage, I see.

    Why would one want to download an entire website?

    Redundant Backups, I assume.

    And everyone else, there is nothing wrong with FrontPage. I use it for some of the sites I maintain because it's just easier to do it that way, and so does Paul Thurott.

    Personally, if I had to use something besides Notepad, I would use Dreamweaver.
