MUMBAI: Webaroo, the creator of the searchable web offline, has introduces a improved version of Webaroo’s services allowing the users' to download web content onto their mobile devices.

"There is definitely a growing interest in accessing Internet content on mobile devices, but consumers have been challenged with small screens and slow but expensive connections," said Enderle Research Group USA principal analyst Rob Enderle. “Webaroo is a wonderful way to provide the experience of a fast broadband connection on a disconnected mobile device nearly eliminating the drawbacks of slow or unavailable wireless networks and high cellular Internet costs.”

“We’ve received great feedback over the past few months from all over the world and have improved our service to meet customer requests. People now have great control over the content they mobilize with Webaroo, can easily save bookmarks, video and audio attachments, and save web sites more completely and easily,” Webaroo CTO and co-founder Beerud Sheth said.

The upgraded service include features:

Increased control: several new features have been integrated to provide deeper management and manipulation of each person’s custom, mobile web. Users can save a web site up to ‘five links deep’ while controlling the download size with easy settings for the number of pages to save or the amount of hard disk space to occupy.

Easily Add Favourite Bookmarks:

People can now import bookmarks from IE and Firefox browsers into Webaroo in one simple step. Support for Saving Multimedia Attachments Webaroo now supports downloading embedded attachments on websites including documents, audio and video content. People can easily limit download attachment sizes.

Browser Button for Adding Web Pages and Sites:

A new Webaroo button seamlessly implemented into Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers makes it easy to add websites and web pages to Webaroo as people browse. People can also add email correspondences.

Content Location Control:

People now have the option to select the location on their hard disk where the offline web is stored. For maximum convenience, they receive an alert when the maximum disk space limit is approaching.

The release informs that it is compatible with computers running Windows XP and Windows 2000 and handhelds running Windows Pocket PC 2003 SE or Windows Mobile 5.0. The company is planning to introduce supports for further mobile device operating systems.

Webaroo is a free software service that allows people to download web content onto their laptops and mobile devices and search it anytime, anywhere, without a connection.
