    wget works truly better than httracks but is more complicated, the -r allow to folow links a download not a single file, -l allow to precise at how many links we stop folowing links to not download all internet xd, and -A (in maj) allow you to precis a file type like wget -r -l 10 -A .pdf https://example.com

    this will download all pdf found on example.com with a limit the search tree to a depth of 10

    Wget is a command line tool, which means that it's harder and more complicated for most people.

    HTTrack is far easier to use and is specifically made for creating offline copies of websites and has lots of options to deal with that, especially using its GUI interface.

    tl;dr Wget is the wrong tool for the job which HTTrack fulfils.

    Wget is only to download single files. HTTrack has rudimentary the same behaviour like a web browser. HTTrack parses the HTML-files of the given URLs and fetches all the assets (pictures, javascript etc) used by the HTML files.

    ArchiveBox is more like your own / self-hosted Wayback Machine or Archive Today. HTTrack is a typical windowed program for crawling websites.
