Save a Web Page as a PDF document
Typically, when you want to save a Web page for future reference, you bookmark it. But what happens if that site gets taken down? Or the content of the page gets changed? Or you want to actually preserve that page in a format that doesn’t require a Web browser?
The best option is to generate a PDF document of the web page. Many PDF “printer” apps are available on the internet. One of them is Web2PDF. It’s lightweight, free and easy to use.
There are actually three ways to use this handy free service:
- Copy and paste the URL of the page you want to convert, e-mail the URL of the page you want to convert to email@example.com;
- install the Web2PDF bookmarklet;
- install web browser extension (it’s available for FF, Chrome and IE)
Just click on “Save page as PDF” button. A pop-up window will appear with 3 options: Download PDF, Save to Google Docs, and Store and Share PDF.
