Alternative to HTTrack

HTTrack is a free tool that you can download and install on your local computer to download your existing website to your computer. While the software is quite old, it does work, but the feature set is limited.

HTTrack also does not seem to be actively maintained anymore, as the latest update is from 2017, and the blog wasn’t updated since 2014.
