    You should see that sites in firefox's search bar. But most software may need dependencies for running so you will have to download all of the dependencies.

    You could do it with apt-get, but I'm not sure what the benefit would be. Basically, on an online Ubuntu 11.10 machine, you would use apt-get to determine what packages you need (including dependencies). Then you'd download them. Then you'd copy the packages to your offline machine, and update apt-get's index to include your local repository. Then you'd install the packages. To avoid security warnings, you'd also need to get certificates. Read the apt-get man page, and google each step.
