WEBARCHIVE File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a WEBARCHIVE file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .WEBARCHIVE files.

What is a WEBARCHIVE file?

A .WEBARCHIVE file is an Apple Safari WebArchive file. Files that contain the .webarchive file extension are associated with the Safari Internet browser. The WEBARCHIVE files that are used by this software contain HTML pages that have been saved by the Safari browser for offline viewing.

The Safari Internet browser is used by Mac computers and is similar to the Internet Explorer used by Windows computer users. When a Mac user creates a WEBARCHIVE file using Safari, it allows them to view the web page that is associated with the file even when their computer is not connected to the Internet. However, if the page is dynamic or interactive, the WEBARCHIVE file will only store the basic information, and the user will not be able to access the full features of the web page through the WEBARCHIVE file.
