How does one download an entire website?
What software does one use to download an entire website?
Why aren’t more people interested in doing this?
More people don't do this because the web is an interactive and dynamic media, and by downloading a site you break that aspect. You'll have a dysfunctional and old copy of the page forever. Unless it's some kind of extremely niche topic thats likely to go offline, but thats fairly unlikely. Also, a lot of sites are members only - so you couldn't download the contents of a protected forum, for instance.
Download Expressions 4 from Microsoft, it's Front Page's successor and now freeware: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36179
Then go to the Site Menu -> Choose "New site" -> Leave it on "General" -> Choose where you want to save the site and the name of the folder for it to be saved in -> Choose "Import Site Wizard" -> Choose the OK button -> Change the Connection in the drop-down box to Http and fill in the other requested info -> Click Next and then Next again and the site will start downloading.
The bonus is now you have the site downloaded and editable in a really great Web editor that I think considering it is free, surpasses Adobe Dreamweaver.
rather than installing a third party software..you should try this firefox plugin -- scrapbook -- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/scrapbook/
Many people are not doing such things because they are now using portable gadgets and they are always or most of the time connected to internet.For many of their time,they used to use Google reader and similar stuffs which downloads their articles of their favorite sites..

Many web spiders will allow saving websites for offline browsing. When I used to do this on a regular basis, I used Teleport Pro. I haven't used it since the late 90x, but it looks like it is still maintained and has had significant improvements since then.
Use a Web SIte Capturing application like HTTRACK. You can Download the entire website or you can filter what you need.
