Right-clicking an item in the tree opens a popup menu with the commands available for the project or for the folder:

Double-clicking a project will open the downloaded site in the internal browser.

The icon indicates that the project is being downloaded at the moment. The icon indicates that the user stopped downloading the project before it was finished.

The internal browser allows you to browse the downloaded sites without exiting SurfOffline. To open a downloaded site, double-click the corresponding project. You can navigate the sites using the Browser Bar.

Connection Status

Shows the list of open connections and their current status:

  • "Url" — the URL of the file being downloaded
  • "Progress" — a visual download indicator showing the download progress

  • "Loaded bytes" — how many bytes of the file have been downloaded so far
  • "Status" — an explanatory text line with the information about the current status of the connection

Status Bar

The Status Bar is divided into several parts:

  1. The progress bar shows the overall progress of downloading the project or indicates that it is finished
  2. Shows the number of files in a queue for parsing, i.e. the files that have been downloaded, but have not yet had their links converted
  3. Shows how many files have been downloaded so far
  4. Shows how many files there are left for downloading to be finished
  5. Shows the status of the internal browser at the moment
