What is a WEBARCHIVE file?

A WEBARCHIVE file is a webpage saved by the Safari web browser. It contains HTML and linked images so the page can be loaded fully at a later time even if the computer is offline (not connected to the Internet). WEBARCHIVE files may also contain CSS or JavaScript depending on the webpage content.

More Information

Safari web archives can be viewed in Safari as well as the iCab and Cruz web browsers. They may also be opened with Apple TextEdit, but the contents might not appear correctly.

NOTE: Safari was developed for Windows until version 5.1.7 but then discontinued.
