A mirror is a static copy of one or more pages from an internet site including
related images, etc.  Static means all server side processing, like searching
and dynamic content, don't exist.  Only plain html and associated files.

The amount stored depends on the site and the mirror options.

The mirror is stored on your hard drive where ever you want it to be. It has
nothing to do with your browser's cache.

The mirror is on the hard drive, it doesn't require a network.  You look at
the pages with any browser.

If you want to backup your blog, use the back-end tools available for your
site.  Dump the database etc. 

httrack is a front-end tool, like any browser's save-as command.
