need a program similar to site explorer


I need a linux program that would have the same functions as site explorer in the windows program FlashGet.

Anyone know of one?
Or will FlashGet work well under Wine or Win4Lin ?

Perhaps you could explain the job(s) that that program does.

ok here:

Site Explorer

The Site Explorer lets you explore FTP or HTTP servers. The site explorer acts much like a Windows Explorer.

Quick Info:

* Just type in a URL into the address bar to start browsing!
* Double-click any files to download them (or open the directory).

It is great for seeing all the files on HTTP server in tree view and be able to pick files to download. (that is what i use it for, not the ftp but http)

That sounds like a web browser.

Check out mozilla, opera and galeon for gui and links for console.

hmm, thanks
but it really is not a web browser,
it is a downloader that lets you see all the files on a particular website in a tree view.

If you want to see the product here is the site, but on the main page it doesn't really talk about site explorer but it is in the program.... again, makes it really easy to find all sorts of files on http site in a tree view.
here is picture of what i am talking about... look on the left side at the htt:// listing

Oh, you want to mirror a site? wget (command line) is the tool.

Open an x terminal and command

wget -m <url of site>

i'm not looking to mirror a whole site, but just be able to see all the files a site contains and pick some files to dowload; in a easy to navigate tree view.

Here is picture of what i am talking about (look at the Http part)
