Do you have favorite websites you visit or want to visit regularly?
No problem. Almost all browsers support bookmarking a page and thus
accessing it easily. But what happens when you finally have a spare
minute to read your favorite Web page and you don"t have Internet
access (for example, you are using your laptop in a place where
there is no Internet connection) or you are using a connection that
charges you Internet usage by the minute? What if you only have a
few minutes and can"t wait for the entire bookmarked site to load
and search the entire site for new articles?
Offline browsers are the answer to such situations. They download
websites to a local system for offline use.
But what do you do with this mess of information? How do you browse
it? How do you search it? How can you automatically highlight
updated articles of an e-zine or a blog?
LiveCHM is the answer. As its title suggests, it is a living CHM.
Why CHM? Because this format allows downloading the entire Internet
(assuming, of course, your hard drive space allows) into a single
compressed file. Moreover, you will be able to browse this file on
a PDA or a cellular phone (if this feature is supported). Why living?
Because it automatically schedules content checks of the online
website and downloads and highlights the updated pages. The content
check is a short request that saves your traffic and Internet time.
