After reading about it here on DC recently (and earlier) was really intrigued, might have to take up offer. Thanks.

Thanks for the info.

A question about the software itself : when I try to add http://www.lg.com/fr...lephones-mobiles.jsp, (Add article + page by r-clicking on the corresponding IE page), the stored page is missing a lot of info.  I have chose a LG site because it's difficult for most software to capture it.

Is there a setting that would improve the capture ?

Thanks.

I must admit I haven't used Surfulater that much recently, mostly because the Chrome addon keeps mysteriously disappearing :(.

I must admit I haven't used Surfulater that much recently, mostly because the Chrome addon keeps mysteriously disappearing :(.

Maybe because Chrome is updated in background quite often and the extension is removed then ?!

One more precision about trying to load LG.com pages in Surfulater : after being loaded, when I re-open them, it generates a lot of "Stack Overflow" in IE, I have to discard the error windows ten times or so, then only a few images are loaded.

The only Web Capture tool I know that store these pages correctly so far is Local Website Archive (Aignes.com).  It probably lacks all the nice metadata handling from Surfulater, but it does store pages correctly.

I just tried to capture the page via right-click using Firefox 6.  I think I got it all, though it lines up vertically each of the versions of each picture.  It's not pretty, but I think I've captured all the text and all the graphics. 

As for a setting that would improve the capture, that's probably a good question for Neville Franks, the developer.  He can be reached via the Support page of the Surfulater website.
