    I'm looking for the best way to create an offline clone of different websites. Whatever software you suggest should be relatively easy to use, and allow you to browse the site offline as if you were online.

    Please list your suggestions here. thanks in advance

    I use wget under linux. There is also a windows version. Can be automated in a script.

    All these softwares will give you just the html source code of the site, and the the server side ones

    If you are using firefox, take a look at the 'ScrapBook' plugin - I am using this to save sites off :)

    You can try Teleport. It can save all the contents to disk for offline browsing.

    Offline explorer pro is much more ahead of this competition. Strongly recommend it.

    You can also use the option in FireFox and IE to 'save complete page as' but it only saves the current page and not the whole website.
