Saving Web Pages - When to use Firefox

by Tech Support on Fri Nov 09, 2007 8:47 am

Internet Explorer's built-in "Save Page" function does not work with all websites and documents. For example, IE can not save this XML page:

http://realsearch.real.com/search/?sear ... RKS&size=5

In such a case we recommend to use the iMacros Firefox Add-On. The Firefox web browser has a superior "Save Page As" function and works with many websites that IE can not save.

The iMacros Browser emulates Internet Explorer 100%, so it has the same advantages and disadvantages of this browser. Note that the iMacros Scripting Interface can remote control Firefox, too.

I'm a noob 8) how would one go about Saving page as (web page, complete) all the (XML) links on a page? There's some XML pages I would like to save that no web spider has managed to get. Firefox save as's them just fine (the css and js -files).
