The website I need to view offline is a whole book that I read online, would the proposed solution allow me to read the book offline?

Thanks!

It is not working for me.

I saved the file (following the instructions in the article), but when I try to open it while offline, and I receive the following message:
"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Any other idea?

Thanks.

No, I have not try the app you posted, for two reasons:
I would like to find the solution within IE, if this is feasible.
I don't to pay for a third-party solution, unless I have to.

If I install FireFox in my laptop... does that mean I can't use IE anymore, because I am replacing my browser with Firefox?

Firefox did not work. It works partially, but not good enough.
I am going to download the other application, and try it before I buy it.

Thank you.
