Save Webpages for Offline Viewing on OS X

In this guide, we'll walk you through two simple methods that will allow you to download webpages for offline viewing on a Mac. These methods are specific to the Safari browser and online application, SiteSucker.

How to Download Web Pages with Safari

The Safari web browser allows you to download webpages in their entirety (along with the text, graphics, and images they contain). Go to the desired webpage and click on the File menu > Save As. Click on the Format drop-down menu and select Web Archive. Choose a save location for your file and then click on OK.

Download Websites with SiteSucker

If you would like to download an entire website for offline viewing, then you will need an app like SiteSucker. SiteSucker will enable you to duplicate the directory structure of a website (including all of its data) to your device for full offline browsing.

You can download SiteSucker for OS X on the Mac AppStore or get the mobile version of the app on the iTunes Store. Once installed, enter the URL of the desired webpage in the URL field and click on Download.
