Solution 1

If you mean download the source of a webpage...

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Net;

And the function...

public static void SaveSource(string url, string path)
    WebClient client = new WebClient();
    string source = client.DownloadString(url);
    File.WriteAllText(path, source);

For faster results of getting the source of a webpage, you may want to look into HttpWebRequests.
