With wget you can mirror complete websites with: wget --mirror --convert-links --adjust-extension --page-requisites website

Is there some equivalent way for using a browser like Firefox or Chromium and download the complete website (maybe with some scripting) ? I'm wondering if e.g. all images would be saved and not just the preview. So if I click on an image in the offline version I get the larger version of the image. Or if I click a link I would get redirected to the local version of the link.

No you cannot do that any more: there used to be plug-ins for FireFox that allowed you to do that, but they're not compatible with the latest version of FF.

Also: wget has a lot of options and implementing all those in a plugin is time-consuming for very few people using them, so it's not worth the development effort as the pros use wget or curl anyway...

  • curl doesn't support recursive downloads or mirroring. When it comes to mirroring a website, Wget is indeed the best, if not only, choice – darnir Oct 25 '18 at 8:28
  • @damir: yup, that's what my wget alias does and the curl.one doesn't: standard recursion for wget! ;-) – Fabby Oct 25 '18 at 18:04
