You can capture and download virtually any webpage using VBA. Here's one method for doing so.

It really depends on what you want to do.

The ones I use are the MS Internet Controls library, MS HTML Object library Microsoft XML library.

I'm sure there are others and you could actually do it without any references if you use late-binding.
