- Does it have to be version 1.13.4?
- Hmm, so you just want to download the page source?

Normally wget will work out of box without extra configuration.  You
can get wget for Windows from GNUWin32 project.  Does the page needs
authentication and other parameters to gain access?

FYI, you should be able to view the page source and the whole network
activity with Firebug or other extensions on FIrefox.

I am curious about the cumbersome security issues that will happen
after accessing a https page on Chrome.
