What's this?

WebArchive Extractor is a utility that can take Apple's WebArchive file format, and turn the file into a "normal" directory structure which you can upload to a web server.


WebArchive files can be created by saving a web page in Safari (saving all the graphics, css, and images) or you can create one with TextEdit.


This utility's focus is on helping you to create simple HTML pages - with images - using TextEdit. The output is useful for static content or very simple web sites.
