Californian company Elektroson has announced WebGrabber, an application that attaches to a Web browser and allows users to download content onto a CD for archiving and off-line browsing. Users of WebGrabber collect on to a hard drive audio, graphics and text files they want stored on a CD, then activate the CD-R function.
WebGrabber, which incorporates Elekstron's Gear CD-R software, can also be used to store email and newsgroup information, Elektroson says.
The company has entered an OEM agreement with Netscape to bundle WebGrabber with Netscape Navigator 3.0. WebGrabber is expected to be available in September and is priced at US$79.95, Elektroson says. Minimum system requirements include a CD-recordable drive, a 486 IBM or IBM-compatible computer, 8Mb of RAM, a SCSI adaptor, and 10Mb of disc space.
