wGet is a council based text crawler.  The wGet your likely seeing is identifying itself as: "wget not really, just for browser wars". I decided to go with wGet because: 1: its a cool program, 2: dont have other wget browser undercutting me, 3: wget is great.  What im really using actually is a modiffied Mozilla.  Please let me continue, its fun.

Should I mention that I'm actually using wget?  Just open a (bash) shell on a unix machine and type:

while true; do read FOO; wget -O /dev/null "$FOO"; done

Then you can paste in a URL, hit enter, and wget will go and download it.  I select the URLs using a graphical browser.

I'm responsible for about half the wget wins, without using a graphical browser at all.

Incidentally, this is made rather harder by the fact that MSIE5 and MSIE5.5 have the same five character abbreviation.

I did this for a while.  It's weird, hard and fun smile Won quite a few even those fast multi-player games.
