This article may read slightly like an advertisement, but there is nothing to be gained by the makers of HTTrack by you using the software since it's GNU licensed.
It doesn't explain what "recursively" means or what a "chron job" is. So it's a pretty obscure advert.
The wording of the 'Bugs' Section is strange and looks like original research.
'It can be used for small websites only which can be downloaded all at once' - well, what does that mean? I've personally used the update feature successfully.
'HTTrack is unable to interpret the HTTP header "Content-Type" correctly'. Maybe true, but this this seems to be the design of the program, and hence not a bug.
Note from the author: httrack is definitely able to interpret the HTTP header "Content-Type" correctly ; you can test this by mirroring these two URls:
httrack "http://www.httrack.com/test_type2/get.htm?1234" "http://www.httrack.com/test_type/fake_image.gif"
Will correctly produce "fake_image.html" and "get81dc.gif"
And regarding the update issue, this was currently only reproduced because of a corrupted index, and/or server-side problems (dynamic pages not handling update requests correctly)
Lack of citable sources
Note from the author of HTTrack (xroche): I do not know whether it may be considered as citable source (and I won't discuss on the opportunity to keep the page - due to obvious conflicts of interest!), but several studies and/or pages are citing (sometimes very briefly - the main topic is not generally httrack itself) httrack:
- Tools and Techniques for Harvesting the World Wide Web - Jennifer L. Marill, Andrew Boyko, Michael Ashenfelder, and Laura Graham - Library of Congress
- Library Of Congress - NDSA: Web Archiving Survey Report - Digital Preservation
- File Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata - Library of Congress

And brief citations from the following sources:

Other "online-only" citations:

Again, these may not be considered as sources, depending on what is considered as a valid source. And the cited samples are neither exhaustive, nor necessarily perfectly representative. Xavier Roche (talk) 08:19, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
