I'm finding SiteScooper + iSilo to work better for me than AvantGo.  (And
I don't even sync on the machine that produces the pdb... so it's not as
convenient as it would be for most.)  iSilo is *much* smaller than
AvantGo, treats your web pages as individual documents instead of
"channels", it's also a Doc reader, so you can view web pages and doc
files in the same interface, it's actually *readable* on a non-color
screen (which AvantGo often isn't) and you don't have to give anybody your
passwords or rely on a service that may go out of business.

iSilo's only drawback for me is a propriatary file format.
