The reliable information are the "98779 bytes received" 
(which is the RAW data received (TCP data without the 
headers)), and "12 seconds". httrack then just computes 
the "8231 bytes/sec" part with a precision of 1 second and 
display the rounded result.

The "overall" stat is not really accurate, due to cache 
issues and compression/ssl issues.
