Saving website on local machine

Sometimes you found a website that is very interesting, but you just do not have enough time to read it on that particular time. You wish you could save it so that you can view it offline without connecting to the internet. This can be done using wget;

$ wget -m -k -K -E

where -m for mirror, -k for convert the links so that it will be suitable for local viewing, -K for backup converted files and -E for adding html extension to the files downloaded. This is the result of the above command;

$ ls

Use any web browser to view the files offline by opening the .html file inside the above folder
