XSite is a freeware program for the Windows operating system that retrieves specific information from websites.
Unlike web browsers, which display a visual representation of the code in their interface, XSite retrieves links, images, zip files and email addresses only.
It does so by parsing the supplied HTML file to extract the information from these documents directly.
This makes it ideal for a number of specialized operations: parse HTML files for email addresses or downloads, grab all image links or text links from a web page.
When you first start XSite after installation, you will notice that the program's interface is very basic.
You type or paste the address of the web page that you want parsed in the URL field at the top, and specify a download directory as well.
XSite downloads the web page and displays its links, images, zip files and email addresses in a tree hierarchy afterwards. This makes it easy to focus on the information that you require.
What this means is that you can click on links to see a list of all links found on the site, or on images to get a list of all images found on it.
The data is automatically saved to a download directory on the local PC, which you can change in the main interface if you prefer a different download location
XSite will load and parse any webpage into a simple structured view for displaying images, email addresses, and all links. Generate a result report that section out all the links, images, and email addresses. Easily grab all images in a web page by downloading them to a local folder. Export lists out to CSV format which makes it easy to push the information into any database.
- Get all emails, links, and images from any web page
- Download images to a local folder
- Generate results reports
- Create CSV files of any results
The program can create reports and save them as txt or log files, or export a node, that is a specific type of data, into csv files.
You may wonder what you could use XSite for. One option would be to use it as an image or zip file downloader. Instead of having to open a web browser, or using a download manager, you could simply fire up the tool to download all of the files or images directly.
Webmasters can furthermore use it to check if their sites leak email addresses, or to export all links into a file to check them this way.
Update: The developer website is no longer available. We have uploaded the last release version of XSite to our own download server. Please note that we don't support the program in any form. You can download it with a click on the following link: XSite
